How about:

.yearMonthHeader * {

I believe this will override the rule with selector "td" only (though I 
would have to check the selector priority rules to be sure).

Possibly this change could be made to the master calendar stylesheet 
embedded in tomahawk...

But that would make the page significantly larger to solve a problem 
that most people don't have. I'd not be very keen on that.

It certainly has less negative effect for people who don't have your issue.
