   I wasn't perfectly clear on the distinction, so I appreciate the
explanation. This change was really a bug fix though - I intentionally
don't clear the selected screen color when the "Allow screen
colors" checkbox is turned off, so that you can do the following:

1. check the checkbox
2. hit the Select Screen Color button and select a color
3. uncheck the checkbox
4. check the checkbox
5. Hit OK and have the color selected in step 2 saved as the screen color

   As the screen color wasn't being cleared when the checkbox was
unchecked, unchecking it and hitting OK would save the screen color you
had previously selected, even though you'd turned off the "Allow screen
colors" option. This fix just made sure that that didn't happen.
