That's a deed of Emacs.  While Emacs 22 has been much improved
for scrolling images, it is not enough for all cases.

I was aware of the problem.  Emacs-w3m uses the `convert' program
of the ImageMagick package to resize images.  It has
the `-transparent COLOR' option, so we might be able to keep
the transparency of images if we can know COLOR (that should be
transparent) of original images.  Though it doesn't seem to be easy.
