Black background, white font extra dialog box for trials and blocks?

I am trying to make my entire experiment with a black background and white text, thus I have set the following defaults as recommended.

<defaults>
/ minimumversion = "4.0.0.0"
/ fontstyle = ("Helvetica", 48pt, false, false, false, false, 5, 0)
/ screencolor = (0,0,0)
/ txbgcolor = (0,0,0)
/ txcolor = (255,255,255)

</defaults>

However, when I do so, the instructions appear as they should (black background, white font), but the trials and blocks appear with a black background - white dialog box - black text background - white font (see attached image). How do I get rid of the extra white dialog box?

Thank you!http://www.millisecond.com/forums/uploads/images/65151972-91c3-499f-9090-9739.jpg

As they should with /screencolor = (0,0,0).

> black text background - white font

As it should with /txbgcolor = (0,0,0) and /txcolor = (255,255,255)

Identify what that element is in your /bgstim, /stimulusframes or /stimulustimes attributes and then either remove it (if you don't need it) or set its color to what you want / need.
