This seems to be related to the tiff library. When I upgraded to
3.7.1 I saw exactly the same thing as you. The strange thing is,
though, that the same icon, when displayed by windowmaker has the
black background and when displayed by GNUstep has plain transparency.
Or am I just talking crazy here?

Ah, that would make sense - have you been able to downgrade the
system to see if it's actually the tiff library causing the problem ?
Because of the way the FreeBSD ports system works it;s rather hard for me
to roll back just one compionent - and I know if I roll the whole lot
back then it works!

Yes, downgrading to libtiff 3.7.0 brings back the correct behaviour. 
Fortunately this is easy with gentoo :-)

I keep monitoring http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=75316 to see when the 
bug will be fixed.
