Hi Felix,

You are absolutely right, and I haven't rechecked every pixel after changing this line. :-)
Feel free to revert or adapt (unfortunately, I don't know yet when I would have some time for this patch). But I want suggest to leave this line for the white case.

Speaking of artifacts, in vlc.git / black style I noticed a black view when switching from playlist (drop view) to media library for a really noticable time (> 0.5 seconds), recently. Now I know why there is a black view at all, perhaps we can find a solution for this, too. ;-)

Best regards,
