This is a known bug, which has finally - hurrah! - been fixed in 2.9:


Using the 2.8.1 engine, I think you can only avoid this problem by raising the 
colours to thousands or millions in the TS client.  However, I'd recommend 
instead that you get hold of the 2.9 beta, and try building your app in that 
instead; it should fix this problem, and it is a much better engine anyway; 
but of course you will need to test it properly, as it is a beta and there are 
some new bugs in there.  But if you find them now while it's still in beta, 
you can contribute to getthing them fixed!
