Before you decide that this is just a wrong bias, I'd like to see a
background image you're using where it chooses the wrong color, just to be
sure it's not a bug, but an actual borderline case that's simply falling on
the wrong side of the algorithm's heuristic. Would you be willing to show me
the example that gives you the wrong result?

While this may be so, things could also be confused by the bugs. Until a few
days ago, the algorithm was broken, which could have tainted the evidence
when you were exploring this and forming your ideas about it.

A possibility.
