Forms Text Control background color problem

For some reason my forum is overriding the color of the text input area (Forms -> Text Control -> Background) for posting forum messages. When I load the page, I can see that the text input area has the correct color for a second, but then it changes to the same color as the forum posts background.

Other text input areas, such as the search form, are not affected; they keep the correct background color.

I just cannot find what might be doing this, anyone got any ideas?
Yes I do, which I have edited all day, and I have no idea when that input area started behaving like this. I know it's hard for someone else to troubleshoot this. (n)

If you're talking about the WYSIWYG editor, then it should be styled with the same background as the messages themselves - to make it closer to see exactly what they'd be posted on. If you're having problems with this, there is an editor style property that you can set.
