This is intentional. When you zoom in or out, it's nice to see a
difference between what is 'up-to-date' and what is not -- the way I've
implemented that is with a background color change (from tan -> white).

Positioning, or text? Positioning may be different, because the image is
not tiled in the same way, so I've seen things shift a little due to
different available spacing.
