Re: Changing background of TextView makes selection invisible

No, that overrides the color of the text of the widget, not the
background color.

There is 'gtk_override_background_color' (also deprecated since 3.16)
but that exhibits the same problem as the CSS-based solution: while the
color of the background indeed changes, it also sets the color of the
selection highlight to the same color. As a result, when you select
text in this TextView, you cannot see how much you have selected.
