Dear All, 

[I'd already sent this message earlier (Apr 6) but as I had no response
and I still see that it is the case in R1.5 I thought I'd try again]

I recently encountered a problem (actually missed some data) because 
"white" is one of colours in the "default" palette and that does not 
show up to well on my transparent (on white background). Of course it is

easily fixed but I think white should not be a default colour.
