Description

When manually setting tab colors, the actual colors differ from what has been set. See the attached screenshot for an example - the colors are much darker than what has been set.

The issue seems to be the background contrast detection, the corrected color is way too dark

This is not a bug of Smuxi's color contrast checker but a bug in the GTK+ theme itself. It uses a pixmap as background for the notebook tabs which has a darker background than the actual background text color. Smuxi can currently only rely on the background text color for the contrast checks. There is a good chance Smuxi can't do anything about at all :/ An ugly hack would be to disable the color contrast checks in tab labels alltogether for local engines or if configured by the user...
