Actually, looking more closely at the application, there is actually
also a seam even when the slider is at 1.0 and the shared edge is
specified with the exact same coordinates in the two polygons.

It's a line of 0xfefefe, so it's not easy to spot, but it is
there. "xgamma -gamma 0.1" is one way to make it easier to see.

So at the moment, the image backend is in the (a) category.
