Oh cool, so the current stable behavior is the result of a bugfix of which is not about
to get in nautilus again to start the cycle all over again..

So just for clarity's sake.

Nautilus 2.20 -- No frames on transparent images
Nautilus 2.22 -- Frames on transparent images
Nautilus 2.28 -- <if accepted> No frames on transparent images
Nautilus 2.?? -- Someone makes a bug report resulting in frames
getting back on the transparent images

I see a pattern ^_^

So to say it boldly. Stop fucking around! make a gconf value or don't
apply this patch. applying it will make bug 338632 appear all over

Btw. Gnome 2.22 isn't THAT long ago so why didn't someone else thought
of this before? surely the one that patched in the 2.22 to 2.24 cycle
is still around..?
