Use previous disposal method in GIF load_end #5125

Resolves #3153

Animated GIFs have subsequent frames encoded as cropped portions of the image. How the image data from previous frames is treated is called the 'disposal method'.

When GifImagePlugin reads disposal_method, it sets up what should happen to this frame's image data and then uses that when seeking to the next frame - in short, the current disposal_method is not something that affects the appearance of this frame, but the next one.

Which is why this

def load_end(self):
# if the disposal method is 'do not dispose', transparent
# pixels should show the content of the previous frame
if self._prev_im and self.disposal_method == 1:

is incorrect. This PR changes load_end to use the previous disposal_method, instead of the current one.

I've added a test case. The second frame of 'Tests/images/dispose_none_load_end.gif' is tested to equal 'Tests/images/dispose_none_load_end_second.gif'. You can verify this should be case by just opening up 'Tests/images/dispose_none_load_end.gif' in an image viewer.
