Calc - cell background color not visible

Using Windows 7, 64bit (English) and Libre Office 4.4.1.2 clean install, Calc (English).

When I set a cell background color in calc with Format > Cells > Background no color appears on

  • active spreadsheet
  • File > Print Preview view

Color does appear on

  • Start Center (soffice.exe) view
  • File > Preview in Web Browser view

Format > Cells > Font Effects > Font Color works correctly.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug?
