I guess you refer to an attachement, but I don't see one …

Well, the color “changes” to the correct one after pressing a key that 
does not change the marking, so I get correct marking. Maybe as 
additional information: It works correctly when using the up/down arrows 
for marking, as well as letter-wise marking. But then only after the 
second letter. When marking only one letter, it first becomes invisible, 
then, after one blinking of the cursor, it becomes mostly visible, and 
after marking another letter, everything is correct.
