I simply -and without further thought- copied the initial setting of 
the old style button, which was transparent and which shows as gray
(see colour palette). I have no problem in changing the initial 
colour to yellow (as with writer highlight colour), but once you 
select transparent colour from the palette, the button shows gray 

Just let me know which initial colour you prefer and I will try to
implement it :)

Another thing: After Ivan's comment on the not getting the background
transparent again, I checked the other split buttons and found that 
the problem is not isolated. I will submit a fix for this as soon as I can.
