Hm, I get a white rectangle where the image should be in my app now. I
tried using the same gif in df_window and it gets rendered there,
but does not have a transparent background. I cant for the life of me
find any difference in the way my app handles this compared to
df_window, but there obviously has to be one. I'll keep looking. I
gather that this loader is not exactly high priority for you guys and I
see where you're coming from with that, but maybe someone else on here
has more clue about gif than me and would care to look into this?
