Why is the epic link-text blue in structures despite the Agile-assigned background color?

I've used Jira's Agile board to color code my epics. When those epics are included in a structure hierarchy, the background color is as I set it in the Agile board. However the link text itself is blue (not white), making it impossible to read unless the background is light. Previously epic link text in the Structure display was white. I have NO idea what happened. The epic name's text still appears white when looking at the epics in the Agile board.

Here is an example of the blue text, which is difficult to read against almost all the backgrounds.

But the text looks fine on issue pages for issues that are part of the epic:

And the text is fine in the agile board, which is where I'm assigning which background color to each epic:

Hi! We did a bit of testing and it turned out to be a bug! Thanks a lot for spotting this.

Once you click the link in the Epic Link column, it is coloured blue as the link you've followed.

This is definitely not the correct behaviour and we'll try to fix this in the next patch. Here is a task in our JIRA:

https://jira.almworks.com/browse/HJ-2297

Please feel free to follow it!

My apologies for the inconvenience, and thanks again for the feedback!

Hello! Normally the Epic Links are rendered the same way JIRA does it, so it looks the same as you see it on Issue Details page, for example. 

Could you please check if it looks ok on issue details? 

And, if possible, attach the screenshots of the epic link on issue details page and in the structure.

If you want, please feel free to create a support request in our JIRA: http://almworks.com/structure/support-request

Thanks,

Eugene

Thanks Eugene - I've attached three screenshots to provide additional context. If a quick look does not suggest an obvious answer, I'll file a ticket. Much appreciated.
