yeah. thanks *so* much for "fixing" this. never mind that it was intentionally that way.

you broke two things at once:

  • due to the uniform coloring of the selection, the visible whitespace is in no way subtle any more. consequently selected text with lots of whitespace (say, properly tabbed out source code) becomes something between plain ugly and totally unreadable.
  • you removed the workaround to make text usefully selectable for mouse-based copy&paste in x, as there is now no way to get rid of the whitespace vizualizers. this was supposed to be quickly toggleable at some point, but it still doesn't seem to be.

and the obvious question is: why on earth do you want visible whitespace in selections? trailing whitespace is visualized by the selection itself, and i see no use case for the distinction between tabs and spaces in this context.
