Undocumented environment variables #2


set XSI_EDITORS_WHITE_BG=1

XSI_EDITORS_WHITE_BG

This undocumented env var was mentioned on the XSI mailing list back in 2008 (ice tree background), but I found out about it another, more brute force, way.

* undocumented env var #1 was XSI_DISABLE_NEW_PICK (see also here, where XSI_DISABLE_NEW_PICK is a workaround for failed component selection in a virtual environment like Parallels)
