Unwanted artifacts in transparent portion of screen...

Hello everyone,


I need your guys' advice. I'm getting these unwanted artifacts in the transparent portions of a custom pop-up screen I've created that extends the 'screen' class. My custom class paints a png image with transparency in the center of the screen in the 'paintBackground' method. The main screen behind my pop-up screen looks as it should until an autotext helper appears then disappears. The parts of the autotext that appear over the transparent portions aren't cleared (png file is redrawn correctly) and become a part of the background/transparent portion of the screen. How do I fix this?

Do you mean the autotext help screen appears on top of your PopupScreen?  Can you provide a screenshot?
