I am not so sure about that. The image opened in GIMP has all the
information and an alpha channel. If you change the alpha channel to be
all opaque, then you will see the image as shown by other viewers you
tried. So I would rather assume that the other viewers don't support
masks in BMP files and just ignore that extra information. As long as
that is not sorted out, you should not file this as a bug report against
GIMP. It is quite likely that the bug is elsewhere.
