  Ok I found the proper contradiction.  #118148

You implemented it so that transparent labels did not draw the border.  I 
changed it so that it did this while still calling the proper base class.  
Which one, again, do you want? :)

Quoting Andrew Walker <arwalker sumusltd com>:

   This is inconsistent with all the other bordered view objects though.  
Furthermore it's certainly the wrong place to put this kind of thing.  If the 
goal is really to have a feature like this, it should be inside 
KstBorderedViewObject since the transparent property belongs to even a base 
class of that.  Circumventing the base class can cause unexpected results when 
other changes are made in the future.
