I tried this on my release verion install of OS X.

It was buggy as hell.

This screenshot (1152x768, ~160K) shows that yes, I have a pretty transparent terminal window but that it's also got lots of "ghost" text - when my text scrolled up, it left little shadows behind. I've noticed this on several different machines, with different color schemes.

I'd be all over transparent terminals if this didn't happen...

Very odd - I get nothing like that, even at 50%+ transparency -- what video card do you have, and how much transparency?

-rob.

I cranked it up to 100% transparency, and it's the ATI Rage Mobility (I think :) that's in my Powerbook G4. :)

I get the same thing in my PowerBook G3 Bronze (ATI Rage) at anything less then about 90%.

I get the ghosted text only if I resize the terminal window - and then whatever text is displayed at that moment leaves a ghost. If I don't resize, there's no ghost effect. (nvidia geforce4 mx in a dual 1G with a 22" cinema).
