Wow that's really crazy...

Ahh right my bad, even with nice internal format support of 1,2,3,4 :-).
I somehow thought it was a 1.1 feature. So that incomplete behavior was
indeed there since day 1 (I think the all-white behavior was due to
pretending like texture mapping was disabled in this case?).
