Any ideas what may be causing it?

Is this from SoD'ed BG1EE that hasn't been modmerge'd ?
Welcome to the sanity, you are free to search for the limit, it's out there, we drew it in the sand.
Here's how to install all the ... mods you ever really could want to Infinity Engine games. I removed the stable word from there as Roxanne began to add BS mods that are likely to break compatibility from the BWS.

It's from .bmp saved in GIMP.

Post it or PM me and I'll take a look at which internal formats the BMP is using.
"Ok, I've just about had my FILL of riddle asking, quest assigning, insult throwing, pun hurling, hostage taking, iron mongering, smart-arsed fools, freaks, and felons that continually test my will, mettle, strength, intelligence, and most of all, patience! If you've got a straight answer ANYWHERE in that bent little head of yours, I want to hear it pretty damn quick or I'm going to take a large blunt object roughly the size of Elminster AND his hat, and stuff it lengthwise into a crevice of your being so seldom seen that even the denizens of the nine hells themselves wouldn't touch it with a twenty-foot rusty halberd! Have I MADE myself perfectly CLEAR?!"

Save it as uncompressed bmp for sure, best is 24 bits per pixel.

When exporting as a .bmp from GIMP, open "compatibility options" and check "do not write color space information", then open "advanced options" and make sure "24 bits" is selected.
