I've not much hobby time at the moment and what I have is going toward 
other stuff. As always, having a small-ish complete scene which shows 
the problem would be a help to whomever debugs.

- What happens if you leave 'once' but scale up enough to be sure the 
robot is covered by the image_map-once? Don't worry about how it would 
look.

- What happens with v3.7? The image_map alpha channel / transparency 
handling was re-worked in v3.8 IIRC.

- Have a vague recollection of another image_map alpha channel / 
transparency related issue in v3.8 too for which I don't think there was 
a resolution. I don't remember details at the moment. If so, we should 
find that thread and add a link here to it and visa versa.
