ooh no - jpeg cannot contain alpha. when u set alpha to 0 - imlib2 just
"ignores" the alpha channel entirely so if there was pixel rgb values where
before there was alpha - you get the pixels back :) if that's not what you want
- you want to blend the image onto some pre-defined solid background (often
image display apps use a grey checkerboard to indicate that those parts were
transparent). then save the result :)
