That's what Bugzilla is for... ;-)

It is even flagged as a release blocker.

 If a frame has had a background inserted after making the frame, its linking to another frame
is uncertain - the background colour is sometimes treated as frame content and linking is
not permitted; however, the logic of "content" in a frame probably ought be inserted content
such as text or illustration, not structural content such as a background colour generated
at frame make time; but until a frame can have such content generated at frame make time,
one cannot experiment in any detail.
