Problem description: 
Version (Build ID: 2bb13b83e40aec362964d26921a3fc1660a5da2)
Pull Date:   Thu Feb 28 20:17:25 2013 +0100
Bodhi Linux 2.2 X64

I am unable to change the fill color of any object in Drawing component. Works fine running release

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open up drawing
2. Insert any shape (example smiley face or rectangle)
3. Right click and select "Fill Area"
4. Select a different color

Current behavior: Color doesn't change

Expected behavior: Color should change to selected color

More info: If you go back into fill color for the shape you can see that it has reverted back to original color

Operating System: All
Version: Master
Last worked in: release

Joren - can you confirm this? 

Marked as Normal - High

Prevents high quality work, regression so bumped it up to high
Comment 2 Jorendc 2013-03-07 19:20:30 UTC
Nice catch Joel!

I can confirm this using Linux Mint 14 x64 with Version (Build ID: 885ddc8a03069e68f192ba32c3956b01608b209) Date: Wed Mar 6 23:34:03 2013 +0100

Therefore I mark this as NEW. Agreed with Joel's priority.

Changing to LibreOffice as all components are affected

@Michael - this one is particularly annoying as "fill" just is useless now, any clue about what's going on? Also I'll try to find someone to look at 4.0.2, this IMO would be a blocker if it is as it's such a normal feature and would reflect quite bad on us if it snuck through.
Comment 6 Michael Meeks 2013-03-18 20:37:24 UTC
Sure - make it a 4.1 MAB then :-) thanks !

I expect there will be some deeper problem.
It always hit me that when I first choose a color and then set transparency, I had to go back once to the color, or open/close the window and do it again.
Anyway, something wierd.

Looks as if the following works for me in 402rc1 too:
- choose color
- change to tab Transparency
- change to tab Color
- OK.
