13.5.6 Change preventing premature destruction of a gp:image

Calling gp:load-image on a gp:image object now associates the image with the specified port (if the image was not already associated). This means that the image is not destroyed until the port is destroyed or gp:free-image is called with that port and image.

In LispWorks 5.1 and earlier calling gp:load-image on a gp:image can create a situation in which the image is destroyed while it is used by the port. The change prevents this.
