All-black text input boxes fix Desktop
If you're having a problem where text input boxes in applications are all black (making it impossible to see what you've typed), you're probably experiencing a corrup ColorSync preferences file.

At least, that's what this thread on the MacFixIt forums seems to indicate. There's some good dialog there, and the solution appears to be trashing the preferences file:

/Users/username/Library/Preferences/ByHost/
    com.apple.ColorSyncDeviceList.localhost.plist


(shown on two lines to conserve table width, but it's all one long path!). Trash this, logout and login, and all should be fine again.
