I actually have deleted all xpm icons from Emacs's access.

If you use 'display' from 'ImageMagick' to show FOO.png, you can see
it is not transparent either. So it is not emacs's fault and I
certainly wouldn't expect Emacs to have better graphic power than
'display' ;)

I think that's quick enough already :-)
