"Ghostly layers" bug


Recommended Posts

Open a single-layered image in Paint.NET from a file. File > New simply won't do. I tested with PNGs.

Add a new layer.

Move the new layer to the bottom.

Duplicate the top layer.

Merge the top layer down with the middle layer.

Undo.

Only the top and middle layers are showing now. The bottom one is gone. Click in the layer window where it should be, and it reappears.

Weird.

Good, good. Got an ETA for fixies? Normally it's a very rarely encountered bug and is quite out-of-the-way, but on one image I was working on today it was simply maddening! I know you're busy so I'm not trying to rush you or anything. I can always just work on my Vista box.

Well, it was 20 minutes of investigation / analysis that resulted in 1 new line of code. Funny how it usually works like that.

Interestingly, I was unable to reproduce this if Windows->Translucent was disabled. Nor in Vista -- ever (Aero on or off). So it seems to be some discrepancy with layered window rendering in XP (not to be confused with image layers). *shrug* Oh well!
