@Björn Michaelsen, thank you for the information.
I confirm that the issue is not reproduced with gtk3 backend.
I also confirm that installing libreoffice-gtk3 is indeed enough, no
need to use start option SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk3.
But unfortunately, there is a number of gtk3-related issues. For example:
Bug #1562513 (Toolbar has a dark background in GTK3 in Ubuntu)
Bug #1527053 (Tab names unreadable in GTK3 in Ubuntu)
Thus, LO with gtk3 backend looks ugly now and, to some extent, unusable. At
least in 16.04.
I agree that fixing the bug for almost obsolete backend is not that
important. It's better to address to the gtk3 issues.
