Text is not visible in the form

I have a very strange problem.

I have an odb file linked to a mysql database. Most of the things are working well but sometimes in the subform the text is not visible if the focus is not on that field.

It's not a formatting issue. I've changed the background color and the text is still invisible without the focus.

Do you have any idea what the problem can be?

Thank you in advance, Andras

What type of control? Is it the only one it happens to? Any pattern - you say sometimes. What is LO version & OS? Have not seen this through LO v5.1.4.2 on Linux.

The control is table.

I haven't found yet any regularity. The problems are somehow linked to the subform records.

Version: / CPU Threads: 4; OS Version: Linux 3.10; UI Render: default;

Any idea?

Using table controls on subforms almost daily for a year now and never seen this problem. This on xubuntu 16.04 using MySQL and HSQL. My LO was downloaded directly from LibreOffice. Have seen distro versions of LO which had problems and needed to be fixed by them (Fedora most recently and Ubuntu in the past). Can't say that is the problem, just an observation.

Here is the subform with the "visible" text: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Byy1...

And here is when the text is not visible: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Byy1...

I have no idea why.
