Looks like there is off-spec behavior going on---not that the gif89a is
very descriptive in the first place.  The "buggy" frame is one which has
disposal method 2, defined in the gif89a spec as

 2 -   Restore to background color. The area used by the
       graphic must be restored to the background color.

And that's exactly what Emacs does, but it looks like web browsers are
rendering the background frame instead, under some circumstances.  I'll
take a look when I have the time.
