Argh, this looks like a regression within Android 9. We haven’t touched the theming in the app itself in months, so the default “dark” theme from the platform must have changed.

We’re overdue to update which platform themes upon which we build, but in the meantime I’ll look into whether we can sensibly override their new defaults.
