I was going to say this is one of those compositing issues that LiveCode
has with many Linux installations. It may be or it may be a new issue
since 6.5. I have a Mint 9 installation running under VirtualBox,
without desktop effects, which displays the backdrop correctly with
every installed version of LiveCode from 4.5.2 through 6.1.0. I just
installed 6.5.0 and see it does not display in that version.
The backdrop did not display under Mint 10 with Compiz and Gnome 2 when
that was my main OS nor has it displayed under an version of
The backdrop problem has been mentioned in the past. I wonder if there's
a bug report.
