SnapshotParameters obligatory fill

SnapshotParameters.setFill(null) fills the target image, before drawing into it, with white. Is there any way of retaining the original image?

The following:
Group g = new Group();
g.getChildren().add(new ImageView(base));
g.getChildren().add(new ImageView(overlay));
g.snapshot(params, null);
is very slow.

    What I usually do to get the "original" snapshot is by setting the transparent color for the fill:
    SnapshotParameters params = new SnapshotParameters();
    WritableImage wImg = new WritableImage(width, height);
    wImg = g.snapshot(params, wImg);
    I also never pass null as parameters for the snapshot method because it will "fill" the given one.

    I tried params.setFill(Color.TRANSPARENT), and the snaphot has indeed transparent background in such a case, but the underlying image is still lost. If the original image was visible in your case, then perhaps it is an inconsistency between platforms? I use Linux, Java 1.7.0_05. If you'd describe your platform, I could post a bug report.
