Thank you Gabor,
I made the above change, and the code compiles fine, but now I get a
error at runtime,

(error:3412): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: IA__g_object_get_property:
property `background' of object class `GtkTextTag' is not readable

I am sure there is a fairly straightforward way to read a property
value, but am just unable to find it.

In the header file <gtkmm/texttag.h> property_background() appears to
be overloaded based on the return type. Can this be done in C++? My
guess is that the compiler sees only the function which returns a
WriteOnly PropertyProxy.
