"Any chance you could turn off the gray overlay when scrolling on the light theme? It makes things really hard to read and doesn't go away when you lift your finger sometimes."

"Motorola photon and Android 2.3.4. It's odd, it only sows up on the light theme and its like there is a gray overlay when scrolling that sometimes doesn't disappear. I know that's kind of ambiguous sounding, so let me know if screenshots or something would help. "

Reverted commit 70eb9aa

The performance savings from omitting the android:cacheColorHint="#00000000" were not worth the compatibility issues on devices with different themes and background colors.
Trying setting various things like android:windowBackground on the theme, ensuring a transparent ListView, etc. did not help.

@talklittle talklittle #222, #199: remove cacheColorHint while fixing gray/white flashing
I thought of it backwards; the fix was to use the
android.R.color.background_light color when possible,
rather than try to force the background to white.
