BTW, I just tried it on a test graphic and it works as expected here. 
There's an "antialiasing" property you can set in the inspector, which 
is true by default, but even with that turned on it still gave the same 
values for both the mousecolor and backcolor.

It sure sounds like the mouse is picking up a shadow or blend somewhere.
