Sven, can you explain what you mean by "incorrect"?
I think the blend mode in the fade UI should be removed altogether.
As people here already commented, even if behind the screen "replace" is set
initially, it should be changed to "normal" automatically.
After all, only the "normal" mode has the desired influence of actually fading
the last effect. If it's called "fade" and it doesn't fade, it's of no use.
