Pseudo-transparency: background not updating #160

When the background changes, the background of the SMP panels doesn't always update properly. Sometimes it turns black. Sometimes it still shows the previous background. This bug was introduced in v1.6.x. v1.5.2 doesn't exhibit the issue.

Can't reproduce, could you provide some example that illustrates the problem, please?

Here is a PSS CUI preset that shows the problem:

Test background.zip

The Spider Monkey Panel contains the biography package so that would need to be installed.

You'll also need to provide two large images & adjust paths. One draws on left, the other on right.

Only ones draw at a time.

Which one draws is determined by boolplay global variable.

Each time a new track is played (or anything that causes PSS script tor run) global changes between either 0 or 1, and image display should change.

I suggest trying on v1.5.2 first so you know what should happen.

On v1.6.1 the image may be trapped & doesn't change. It might work on first track change but not thereafter.

Hopefully you can now reproduce.

Sometimes the transparent area goes black, instead of trapping the previous image, but I haven't a simple test of that. .
