Confirmed with a recent 6.1 master build / Ubuntu 17.10, changing background color in sidebar (or in Format -> Paragraph... / Area) has no effect.
Works fine in
=> regression

Bibisected to the following commit using repo bibisect-linux-64-6.1, which is interestingly the same as bug 117749's cause. Adding Cc: to Bjoern Michaelsen, please take a look.

use WriterMultiListener instead of SwDepend in SwContentNode

I had prepared a report for this and was just about to hit Submit, when I found this via the bisected commit (so difficult to find right keywords :))

This obviously cannot ship with 6.1, so let's pump up the priority & severity to make some noise.

Note for testers: the Background color button is by default hidden in the toolbar, so if you want to use it: first right-click the Formatting toolbar, Visible buttons - Background color
