Bug Description

In previous version of gucharmap, when you used Ctrl+F to search for a character, the current match would have a hilighted background so you can see which one it is.

In the current version on Ubuntu 12.04, this is no longer the case. The display still scrolls to show the currently matched character, and the text at the bottom-left shows the correct character, but the actual entry is no longer highlighted.

Confirmed in 12.10. This is a theming issue as Adwaita correctly shows the highlight.

To reproduce:
1. Open gucharmap
2. Select a character in the map
3. Open search dialog with Ctrl+F
Expected result:
Character is still highlighted
Observed result:
Character is no longer highlighted.

It appears the theme is not rendering any highlight when the window has lost focus. Refocussing the window (i.e. clicking the top bar) correctly shows a highlight.
