New 27" color a bit harsh?

I've been working for a few days now with my new 27. I notice that most colors look pretty good, especially when opening Illustrator or Photoshop files from before. However, the yellow popup hint color seems really lime/green tinted.

Does anyone else see this?
screen grab:



I may be a little critical because I work with color professionally, but would love your input.

Yeah I know, the image was more of a clarification so people knew exactly what what I was talking about, as "yellow popup hint" may be incorrect terminology or vague.

I did mean how does it look on your unit.

Just hover over a UI element and the "tooltip" will appear. You must hold your cursor completely still though.
