Please file a bug report for Ambulant, then. Note that this is no  
guarantee that the bug will actually get fixed (there are only so  
many hours in a day, unfortunately:-) but at least we'll know about it.

Also, note that the better the bug report the better the chances that  
it'll get fixed (or at least looked at). So if you supply SMIL+images  
that we can download and run to see the bug (plus information on the  
platform you use and any other things that may be relevant) it's much  
more likely to be looked at soon than if simply trying to recreate  
the problem takes hours. As a point in case here: trying to recreate  
the situation you sketch here (4-channel PNG has a problem with  
transparency) without additional information would take the better  
part of a day: how do I create a 4-channel PNG, what is it that  
doesn't work, on which platform, in which situation (stacked regions?  
Transitions? Something else?).
