Lightroom: "Background Fill Color" Medium Gray (default) is actually darker in LR 3 than in 4

I'm trying to rebuild some complex user presets from LR 3, which are broken in LR 4. The easiest way for me to do it is to eyeball the image in LR 4 compared to LR 3 and adjust LR 4 and create a new preset. BUT in trying to do this, I notice that the default background tonality is different in LR 3 and 4.

"Background Fill Color" Medium Gray (default) is actually darker in LR 3 than in 4, on both main and secondary monitors, which is making my comparison of effects between the old preset and new preset difficult.

There seems no way to correct the ~ 10% tonality difference.
