Windows only bug. Bug appears only when Cleartype enabled, probably related
to the hack introduced on 2005-07-01 to fix some other Cleartype problem.

Yes, I have seen some traces of background coloring remaining on the screen, but I wonder whether that is an overlay only thing. I will try to observe it again.

BTW, what font are you using in your tests? Or does it happen with any font?

The default. I have never tried changing font, actually. If you have any suggestions for testing then please point me to some quick recipe for changing fonts to.
