[NTG-context] error bar gap with pgfplots/tikz and custom colour

Dear list,

I'm using pgfplots to create some bar charts with error bars, and I
want to use custom colours for them.  This works, but if I mix a
custom colour with another colour, it results in a gap between the
error bar line and the error bar mark.  If two custom colours are
mixed, the gap seems to be doubled.  Mixing with predefined colours
works normally.  MWE:


\definecolor	[Blue]	[h=3465a4]
\definecolor	[White]	[h=ffffff]


	\startaxis[ybar, error bars/y dir=both, error bars/y explicit]
		\addplot+[blue!50!white] coordinates {(1,5) +- (0,3)};
		\addplot+[Blue] coordinates {(1,5) +- (0,3)};
		\addplot+[Blue!50!white] coordinates {(1,5) +- (0,3)};
		\addplot+[Blue!50!White] coordinates {(1,5) +- (0,3)};

Kind regards,
Joshua Krämer
