Problem with transparency gradient

There is a problem with the 'transparency gradient' (linear, axial, radial,
etc) in Impress, when turning to presentation mode. It is a regression from
openoffice, but present since the first version of LibreOffice.

The best way to see it is the following:

1) Make a new slide with black background;

2) Draw a shape and fill area with black (so you have a black shape on black

3) Right click -> Area -> Transparency -> Gradient and choose for instance a
linear one;

4) Start the diaporama (F5) and wait for the rendering: your black form isn't
black anymore !

See test files in attachment for illustration...

Even if this functionnality can be considered as not essential, this bug can be
a big problem, affecting the retro-compatibility with openoffice: for instance,
an enterprise using transparency gradient for its logo (made on OpenOffice) is
very very annoyed !

This bug was reported, but mixed with other problems, in bug 35681. As it was
recently closed, but not completely fixed, I open this one with a specific
