I have a few projects in 1.8.0 that have raster layers that are terrain relief shading. I have set these up to be shaded as single band gray with 80% global transparency.

When I open the same project in 1.9 the shading is changed into a colour and it comes up as green and loses the transparency. This means I have to go through all the images, again, and change them all back to what they were before.

Is this still true for master?

Can you attach an example, e.g. a QGIS-1.8 project with one affected raster layer, including the raster file?

Closing as wontfix due to age of 1.8/1.9 versions
