Hello again,

I dig a bit deeper and found out that the problem is in

There is an optimization to only modify pixels if the specified
background-color differes from the image-transparent color:
if (xsdo->bgPixel != pixel + 1)

I found out that the problem only appears if I specify Color.WHITE in
drawImage every other color works, I wrote some debug-output:
xsdo-bgpixel is now: 0
pixel value is:-1

So it seems Java believes that the transparent-color of the image is
white while its balck in reality. If I comment out if (xsdo->bgPixel
!= pixel + 1)  it works as intended as it does when specifying any
color !=white.

Where is xsdo->bgPixel calculated and how does this strange "pixel"
value come from ((255, 255, 255) = -1)?

Sorry for asking so much, but the code is quite confusing for a newbie...
Thank you in advance, lg Clemens
