It's a bit of a wonky bug in how the auto-generated help is produced,
in that the default for that option in the underlying class is really
'linux', but the qtconsole overrides that default (since it uses a
white background by default) to be 'lightbg', but the help
auto-generated messages don't detect the override.

So I'd say it's a small bug in our fairly elaborate configuration machinery.
