Changing canvas background color doesn't work when preview window is attached

While the canvas preview window is attached, go to Project settings and change the background color to anything other than black. Clicking OK does not persist the change, nor does the new color take effect. In order to change the background color, you have to detach the canvas, and then change the background color.
