Splash Screen?

I've been working with this script but not had acceptable results. If I
download the provided System_boot.png, I can convert it with the script
quite easily, and I can program it to the phone using dfu-util as well.
If I make a minor change, such as painting a line along the image (using
Photoshop), it converts and downloads fine and I can see the change.

The problem I've had... if I paste an image into this graphic (to
overlay a logo), the image displayed by the phone is corrupted from the
point of approximately the middle of the logo, extending to the bottom
of the screen. That is, the top half of whatever I paste is displayed
properly, but the entire bottom of the screen, starting from about the
midpoint of my pasting, is noise.

I've been able to repeat this with every attempt, and I've tried the
same thing using gimp rather than Photoshop (to the same results).
