Sorry to disagree!
I have been having his problem on Ubuntu 20.10 for some time. Yesterday

Today I have done the upgrade to 21.04, the effect was still apparent,
the workarounds still had no effect.
Also (and this is probably not a Gnucash problem) Gnome Tweaks behaves
very oddly , uninstalling and reinstalling had no effect.
"Oddly" here means that trying to access the drop down lists on the
Appearance tab does not reveal any other alternatives - it seems to be
stuck on the theme set in Ubuntu Settings. - I'm sure that in the
historic past this was not the case. There are other oddities as well.
Research is required - of me.
