[Matplotlib-users] facecolor for legend with alpha and shadow

Hi all,

I'm wondering why using shadow=True causes shading of the legend box when
framealpha is set to a number.  That is, if I do:
fig,ax = plt.subplots()

The face color of the legend is gray.  There doesn't seem to be any reason
for this, so I'm assuming it's a bug.  I've been looking through the docs
and haven't found anything relevant - and haven't found any way around it
other than turning off the shadow. Any help would be appreciated.
