BSlider with custom thumb has drawing bugs

Take a look at the example slider with custom thumb in the Be Book :

The example overrides DrawThumb with something drawing an ellipse. On BeOS, this worked fine as the example shows. On Haiku, however, there is no background under the thumb, so drawing anything non-square will do weird things.

The problem is in BSlider itself, with the following piece of code :

	// ToDo: the triangle thumb doesn't delete its background, so we still have
	// to do it Note, this also creates a different behaviour for subclasses,
	// depending on the thumb style - if possible this should be avoided.
	if (Style() == B_BLOCK_THUMB) {
		BRect thumbFrame = ThumbFrame();
		if (be_control_look != NULL) {
			// fill background where shadow will be...
			// TODO: Such drawint dependent behavior should be moved into
			// BControlLook of course.

I'm not sure what this is meant to do, but it make the custom thumb look corrupted. An example of such a custom thumb in a running app is APlayer (which you can download at ).

I don't understand why is there a background.Exclude there ? Should it be removed ?

Removed this code in hrev42425. Doesn't seem to have any side effects on sliders.

For the record, the aforementioned code was to avoid flickering. It doesn't have too bad consequences with our double buffered drawing. If it proves to be a problem, we can enable the offscreen drawing mode for BSlider as explained in the Be Book.
