One possible reason just occurred to me:
If some of the black lines in your image_map image are very thin, and if you are
using antialiasing for your final render (and at a relatively low resolution),
the AA might be 'smearing' those black lines a tiny amount-- making them
'fuzzy', i.e. grayscale and not black.

Try rendering your image_map at a larger size, with no AA, to see if this helps.
