Are you trying to make a drop shadow for an object against a transparent
background? At least it sounds like this to me. (Otherwise, you don't 
get the checkerboard pattern.)

I've experienced that in this case the drop shadow isn't easy to notice.
I usually create a temporary white layer  to see the effect, and then 
delete this layer again. (You will have to move this white layer to
the bottom first).

I'm hoping that my description is of some help.
