Screenshot for Konsole tab text color issue

New tabs start out with usual black tab text color. After using Konsole for some time, I see several tabs using a dark violet text color, probably used for monitoring (which I have not enabled). This color never resets back to black.

In attached screenshot, the first two tabs show this violet color. The last two tabs are freshly created, and still have the correct black text.

BTW, the monitoring actions are no longer present in the tab context menu.

I now understand that this is not related to custom monitoring, but to automatic monitoring. When a tab receives output, but is not currently active, the tab automatically changes its color. Previously, this color was reset when visiting the tab.

Still broken in Applications/18.12 branch though. This is quite annoying ;)
Comment 6 Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis 2018-12-21 10:19:36 UTC
For still affected users, a workaround is to move a tab using 'Ctrl + Shift + Left Arrow' or 'Ctrl + Shift + Right Arrow' :) .
(Moving using mouse does not help...)
Comment 7 Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis 2018-12-21 11:25:07 UTC
This bug was fixed as side effect of commit 7a43e3b2cde05a70a38c0bcac39051b675425bf9 (with follow-up in commit f2fab9a26a32caf08d24a7035893a3ba4d28ed61).

The first commit partially fails to apply to Applications/18.12 branch.
It can be applied after backporting commit 0709fdcbb5355d6dea2dd2b0e2ef9a635b698bc5.

So these 3 commits could be backported:
