I don't see that in a quick test I did.  Maybe the border got turned 
on, somehow.

Or do you mean the image itself has a white rectangle?

If the white is only at the edge...  In that case you can write a small 
script to get the imageData, and compute an alphaData and set that.

Or you might be running across bug 560 or bug 1090, where transparency 
is lost.  The first is a problem in pasting an image.  The second is a 
problem of transparency being lost when the card changes.
