    BackgroundColor on ItemRenderers in mx:List control


      We have some mx:List controls in our application and the backgroundColor on the itemRenderers has stopped working when we moved from Flex 3 to Flex 4. Is this a known issue? I have been searching high and low for any mention of this and I haven't been able to come up with anything. It seems that if I create another container inside the root container, I can set the color on that but I was wondering if there was any way to get it to work without such a large change.

      I built a basic sample and it is showing the same problem:


      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      <s:WindowedApplication xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009"
                             width="200" height="250">
              <!-- Place non-visual elements (e.g., services, value objects) here -->
              <s:ArrayCollection id="testData">
                  <fx:Object name="Line 1" description="Description One" color="#347FE7"/>
                  <fx:Object name="Line 2" description="Description Two" color="#387fe8"/>
                  <fx:Object name="Line 3" description="Description Three" color="#a437bd"/>
          <mx:List dataProvider="{testData}" width="100%" height="100%">
                          mouseOver="{setStyle('backgroundAlpha', 1.0)}"
                          mouseOut="{setStyle('backgroundAlpha', 0.5)}">
                          <mx:Canvas width="16" height="16" backgroundColor="{data.color}" />
                          <mx:Text text="{data.name}"/>
                          <mx:Text text="{data.description}"/>
