Do not use that layer. Gimp saves transparent as transparent, if it
has color, it does not appear transparent (I do not remember the
threshold that decides transparency when only 1 bit is avaliable).

I think you will have to change colors in the palette or create a
custom palette if you want a given set of colors.
