I made a pango patch.
This patch will fix shadow text color, if the subtitle has foreground color.
More information, please see the screenshot below.

I'm sorry. I've read 'Submitting Patches' manual later.

fix attribute reference

Previous patch has some bugs associated with the attribute variable reference.
This patch fixed it.

That does look much better indeed :)

Thanks for the patch, ported it to the 1.0 branch (where this code is in a different file), and pushed it:

    pango: avoid unnecessary pango attribute list copy
    We just want to keep it alive, not modify it, so a
    simple ref should be enough.

    pango: delete foreground color in shadow text
    This makes colored text have gray drop shadows
    instead of colored ones, which looks much better.
