Base-avatar skirts broken with advanced lighting model?

Question

Observed on Firestorm Viewer.

Using my favorite fantasy outfit for the first time since switching on Advaned Lighting model, I noticed a strage behaviour for the skirt part. Apparently skirts now have the effect, invis-prims used to have. Can this be fixed?

Note: The alpha-occlussion effect also occurs for alpha-less texture, if the length is limited by the "length" setting of the skirt layer.

No... They do not 'behave like an invisiprim'.

What they do do is cause alpha-blend  sort glitches when you stand in front of, oh for example...

So basically, you created a deliberate alpha-blend sort glitch scene to prove that system skirts with alpha blend (and yes, non alpha'd textures used with system skirt length sliders count as alpha blended) in them 'behave like invisiprims'.

As for invisiprims not working in ALM, invisiprims are officialy deprecated, and frankly nobody should be using the damn things anymore anyway.

As for a fix... There are several, you can...

1. Not stand in front of alpha glitch nightmares like the two blocks thing

2. Stop wearing alpha blended system skirts 

3. Turn off ALM and enjoy the great 2008 system avi taste, preferably on the badly reanimated corpse of Viewer 1, aka Dr Singularity's Frankenviewer...

Also make sure you NEVER buy anything with the words "mesh" or "bento" or "materials" in the title or description...
