Bug Description

As described - using the > button produces a black transition, the Enter key works as expected, smooth transition with chosen Background

This may have come around with the 0.2.6-0ubuntu1 upgrade, not 100% sure. There's no way to see if the initial 'corruption' fix package works both ways, downgrading now to 0.2.5-0ubuntu1 again produces the corrupted trans.

*didn't when 0.2.5-0ubuntu1 first released, it fixed the corrupted screen bug here, now it doesn't so some other upgrade is also a possible factor
