Are you running in 256-color mode (such as through terminal services)? 
Newer GTK (our GUI library) versions have a bug in their handling of
256-color mode, which results in a display like that you described
above.  If you need to run it in 256-color mode, you can choose GTK1 at
the beginning of the installation as a work-around for now.
