Bug Report: Textbox has transparant background when editing equation in constraint

OS: Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia
Word size of OS: 64-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.17.13515 (Git)
Build type: None
Branch: releases/FreeCAD-0-17
Hash: e17b340949b75a226cc7d89989b0aa238ccfc75f
Python version: 2.7.12
Qt version: 4.8.7
Coin version: 4.0.0a
OCC version: 7.2.0
Locale: English/UnitedStates (en_US)

This may be specific to this particular distribution of Linux.
This has been around for several versions of FreeCAD, and several versions of Linux Mint Cinnamon. I was surprised when I searched and found nothing, but perhaps I chose the wrong search terms.

How to reproduce:
Open a sketch
enter any constraint that takes a length or angle (requires text entry, and allows equations)
Click on the equation button (or hit '='), note that the original value does not go away.
Type in your equation, note that you have a double exposure of the text you just typed in, and what was originally there.

Example:

This does not prevent proper operation, it just makes it really hard to read the equation you entered. I find I need to highlight it to make it readable.
