No, i found out what it was. There are two problems, though i
don't know what's causing them. I've filed bug reports.
Everything works perfectly in C, so i don't know what's going on.

The first problem is that for some reason Imlib doesn't think it
knows how to load PNGs any images when accessed from Python.
Because of this, it tries to use convert from ImageMagick.
Unfortunately, it doesn't have the correct path to conver (it's
using /convert).

That is the problem with the Helix packages. The normal Debian
packages only have the first problem. They successfully load
images with convert, but transparency doesn't work. Imlib loads
the images without convert when accessed from a C program.
