Package: evolution
Version: 3.20.2-2
Followup-For: Bug #822863

Dear Maintainer,
Per https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=757503
Make sure that webkitgtk3 is built using gtk 3.20 - we had that problem too in openSUSE
while gtk3 was updated, webkitgtk3 had not been rebuilt using gtk3 3.20
A rebuild of webkitgtk fixes this issue.

On amd64 debian buildd logs shows latest webkitgtk build was on libgtk3  3.18.9-1.

I did a local build (pdebuild+cowdancer) of webkitgtk against gtk 3.20
(I tweaked "Source" "Build-Depends" and "Package" libwebkitgtk-3.0-dev  "Depends"  
from "libgtk-3-dev (>= 3.10.0)" to "libgtk-3-dev (>= 3.20.0)").
and confirm the white on white selection is gone, at least on evolution 3.20.2-2.
