Without getting fancy, I just tried this image in gimp-1.3.18 (Linux,
RedHat 9).  It opened with the pink background, but I could repair the
transparency by (a) adding an alpha channel in the Layers and Channels
Dialog and (b) select by color/clear selection.  

Is the problem as simple as losing the alpha channel from the GIF in the
later versions?
