Bear in mind that I am running Mint 14 Xfce, not Gnome or KDE. 

In the Settings utility I found the GTK themes, a couple dozen of them,
but regardless of which one I choose selected text remains black on a
dark blue background. I am using Clearlooks, which I have used on other
computers and I never had this problem with Claws Mail.

Selected text does not become black on a dark blue background in any
other app.

Are you sure the problem is in the GTK themes?
