Hmmm...maybe it's a bug in the Linux engine masquerading as a feature. 
I've only been using this on my own system, so I haven't had occasion to 
try it elsewhere.

Or maybe it's a feature masquerading as a bug in OS X?

Useful either way.  Maybe file a bug report, and if they don't think 
it's a bug it becomes a feature request for a see-through blend.
