Yes, I am talking about the background color of my cards (the background 
color of the stack, actually). And yes I did exactly that--created a 
blank image, sized it to the card size, colored it and sent it to layer 
1. There are often work-arounds for bugs and this is one. BUT, Rev has 
the ability of setting the background of a stack to a specific color, and 
this works fine in all but the Mac OS PPC build (actually, I didn't test 
the Unix build).

I'd be interested in a confirmation of this bug if anyone else happens to 
try it.
