Imlib2 image-create initializes w/ garbage

image-create calls the foreign lambda imlib_create_image which initializes as garbage.
To fix that, it then calls (image-fill-rectangle img (color/rgba 0 0 0 0) 0 0 width height) with the purpose of setting it all as 0 0 0 0 pixels. The problem is that doesn't work, it stays garbage, because image-fill-rectangle doesn't overwrite pixels, it just blends with them.

As a proof of concept for this bug,
try calling (image-fill-rectangle output (color/rgba 0 0 0 0) 0 0 w h) on an image after calling (image-fill-rectangle output (color/rgba 255 255 255 255) 0 0 w h). It'll still be white, because filling a rectangle with transparency doesn't overwrite with transparency, it just adds transparency "on top".

What a weird bug; I couldn't come up with a solution. Love the imlib2 egg, but this makes create-image sort of a useless part of it. There's no documented way to clear or erase pixels, to set them to transparent, by using the egg.
