THX Cohen for that fast answer.
I did try it, but the result is not correct. (half trancparency in half 

*** But Meanwhile i have discovered the problem....:
*) When I changed texture, i changed the texture file and re-opened it 
in Blender.
*) The Preview got updated, but the final Render used the old version.
(in this case I added transparency later and so I saw the correct 
version in preview while the final render still used the old texture 
without alpha: The Alpha channel of the texture always was 1 -> strength)

Cycles Render does not update the ?cache?, if the same file is re-opened.
A "reload" button as in Blender-Render is missing.

*** ...and therefore I found my Workaround:
If I save the new version to a new filename, Cycles Preview AND Final 
got updated.
See the difference. ;)
