I'm trying to look at what you describe and don't think I understand what to look for. Are you saying that if you put two 0.5 translucent planes in front of an opaque item the intensity of the opaque item is the same as when you put only one 0.5 translucent plane in front? If that is what you are describing, that is not what I see (at least not with the development version, I'm working with).
