That's too bad, as I don't think the patch is acceptable with this
defect. I could maybe see if I can find something by reading the Tk
sources, but I'm not really sure where to start, to be honest. Any
suggestions appreciated.

I only added this check because I initialize the select_fg color to
lightblue in non-ttk mode, so the file lists would switch color even
though the text fields don't, and I wanted to avoid that. Of course, if
I initialize select_fg to lightgray as before, this is not an issue, and
the behavior is unchanged in non-ttk mode. I'll change that in v2.

I don't see how; any concrete suggestions? But I have other ideas how to
simplify the code (by using one function set_selection_colors that takes
a has_focus bool and is used for both bindings).

No, $i wouldn't work because we're inside curly braces, so $i wouldn't
get expanded. It would be possible to work around this by using ""
instead of {}, but why? Using %W seems to be the idiomatic way in
bindings, we do this everywhere else too.
