editviewoverlay: corrected AttributeChange
EditView on Overlay visualization needs to handle
selection change when e.g. FontSize attribute of
a selected text portion changes. Changed handling
so that selection overlay is an integral part of
text visualization overlay and refreshing text
visualization always refreshes selection visuals,
but not the other way around. Both anyways check
for real change, so just extra testing is avoided
which is still the better solution

Hi Paul,
You commit fixes this issue and bug 119341 and probably some other slownesses.
Should it be backported to 6.1 branch ?
Comment 6 Paul Trojahn 2018-09-23 21:58:42 UTC
Not sure. It works on 6.1 on my machine, but it seems like a pretty large patch to backport. What do you think?
