  That actually might be an issue with Text widget on SWT, it is not
using the parent's background for read-only widgets. I've committed code
to set background for all those fields and also removed borders from
non-editable fields on remote properties dialog. I'll look at the other
panels later.

  One advantage of using text fields instead of labels is that their
text can be copied into clipboard. That is quite handy on the property
dialogs.
