On my (24bpp, so it's not a color depth thing) OPENSTEP 4.2/Intel machine,
the scroller well is filled with a checkerboard pattern composed of single
pixels that alternate between 1/3 and 2/3 intensity (AKA darkGrayColor and
lightGrayColor), starting with 2/3 intensity at the top left, with a
lightGrayColor 1-pixel interior border.

It's not a thoroughly big deal, but that's the way it's drawn. :)

It looks like the attached shot (selection captured with Grab and scaled
up by a factor of six).
