I'm the one who created the icon. It is supposed to use a transparent
background. It could be a few things, but my best guess is:
Windows doesn't support 8-bit alpha
I'm not sure about this, because I believe windows supports > 8-bit
icons. Gimp only gives you the option to do 8-bit with 1-bit alpha, or
32-bit with 8-bit alpha.

I can create them with a white background, I started with transparent
because it was easier.
