I mainly use ArtGem and sometimes Pro Motion, Gimp, Photoshop.

The fill can be a transparent color, or even totally transparent (like the Atari 800 XL version).
Wait for the new map i'm working on for an example, it uses a map from an Amiga game and transparent fill colors.
With this feature, you can draw some nice maps and still see it when countries are conquered.

I will look at this bug when i'll be back from holydays.

dizt3mp3r, I had the same problem with .bak files; In the end i turned off the 'Backup XML on save' in the options menu of the editor and that fixed it.
