Actually I did rebuild the GIF codec with PureC, however the same bug remains with the background. I think this bug is noted in the issue tracker at zorro's site, but it's still unresolved. It's linked against libgif which by some stroke of luck I managed to build for PureC, but I'm not sure if the bug is related to that or if it's a more general problem in the codec itself.

Visit my bitbucket URL above and grab the gif.ldg I just uploaded. It's my PureC build + a fix for the messed up backgrounds.
It now loads and animates a rather large gif that didn't look right before. Let me know how it goes.

The 'snowy background' has been vanquished on the three that I tried. Nice job!
For general information, there are three main issues for non or incorrectly displaying anim GIFs on zView.
1. The 'snowy background', which is now fixed
2. Some larger anim GIF's refuse to display on zView. I think this is memory allocation or amount of memory on the host machine. As something that balks on a 64 MB Aranym set-up, may be okay on a larger memory real Atari like a CT60. (Some even crash zView.)
3. A comparatively rare one, where the GIF displays, but does not animate. I guess this is down to differences in how this type of GIF is encoded? These are rare though.
Anyway, thanks for all your recent work on the codecs.
The particular gif CiH sent me had 0ms set for all frame delays.
