Hi all, I'm writing a program that needs to draw partially transparent
overlay over images. So far, it works in Linux and windows, but the
overlays aren't transparent in OS X. I have some sample code that
illustrates the problem, does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

import org.eclipse.swt.SWT;
import org.eclipse.swt.layout.FillLayout;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Canvas;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Shell;

public class ImageTest {
private static Image fullImage;

public static void main(String[] args) {
Display display = new Display();
Shell shell = new Shell(display);
shell.setLayout(new FillLayout());
ImageData imageData;//= new ImageData("C:/temp/Idea_PureWhite.jpg");
fullImage = new Image(display, ImageTest.class.getClassLoader()
.getResourceAsStream("org/scohen/juploadr/resources/logo.png "));

imageData = fullImage.getImageData();

imageData.alpha = 128;

Canvas canvas = new Canvas(shell, SWT.NONE);
canvas.addPaintListener(new PaintListener() {
public void paintControl(PaintEvent e) {
String displayText = "transparent label";
ImageData imageData;
Point stringWidth = e.gc.stringExtent(displayText);
ImageData labelData = new ImageData(stringWidth.x + 5 ,
stringWidth.y + 5, 32,
new PaletteData(0xFF, 0xFF00, 0xFF0000));

labelData.alpha = 64;
Image label = new Image(e.display, labelData);
GC gc = new GC(label);
gc.fillRectangle(0, 0, labelData.width, labelData.height);

gc.drawString(displayText, 0, 0, true);
labelData = label.getImageData();
labelData.alpha = 64;
e.gc.drawImage(fullImage, 0, 0);
e.gc.drawImage(label, 140, 0);

while (!shell.isDisposed()) {
if (!display.readAndDispatch()) {
