[IDV #MDQ-530384]: kml image transparency

Hi Bill,

> Description of problem: I found a neat .kml file in an internet forum that 
> loads composite radar maps from Intellicast. What I like about it is that 
> different precipitation types have different colors - which the nexradcomp 
> dataset does not have. It is attached for your pleasure.
> Although it is intended to be used with Google Earth, it does work with the 
> IDV. However, the background displays as blue, when it is supposed to be 
> transparent. (BTW, it is a .gif file.) If I save the file on my disk and open 
> it in Microsoft's Photo Editor, the background is shown as a white and gray 
> checkerboard, suggesting that it is transparent.
> So, why doesn't the .gif file have a transparent background when loaded into 
> the IDV ? Do I have to do something ?

No, I had to do something. This will be fixed in tonight's build.
