Regression range

I assume it was a mistake that your marked 69 as affected.

Harry, this is probably your regression. Can you take a look?

Thank you for the correction, indeed was force of habit.
Re-confirmed with 69.0 and 69.b016 and they are not affected.
Managed to get the regression range as well, updating the initial post with the results.

While this problem is worst on Linux, I'm expanding the scope of this bug since contrast is low on all platforms. The attached patch affects all platforms as well.

  • If yes, steps to reproduce:
