ActionBarCompat with Theme.AppCompat.Light.DarkActionBar shows white title text but black spinner text

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I'm using the ActionBarCompat and both Title text followed by a spinner in the ActionBar. I'm using theme Theme.AppCompat.Light.DarkActionBar which should show white text on a black background. The title text does show in white but the spinner text appear in black. Switching the theme to Theme.AppCompat.Light has both as black text on white. Can anyone suggest how I can get white text into the spinner? I've seen suggestions for ActionBar and ActionBarSherlock but can't get them to work on ActionBarCompat. I've tried styles as per the following without success: <style name="SBRRTheme" p (HowTos)
