Too bad, because in my experience `set-face-attribute` is more often
a problem than a solution.  Maybe you should try to use
`face-spec-set` instead.

Regarding your problem with `package-selected-packages`, I plead guilty.
Not sure how best to address that problem.  In the short term, you can try
something like

    (advice-add 'package--save-selected-packages :override #'ignore)

tho it probably comes with other undesirable side-effects.  I suggest
you file a bug report (and send me the bug#nb) so we can discuss
alternatives (and if you filed one already, just send me the bug#nb).
