transparency not correct with fvwm + fvwm-crystal + radeon


Hi all,

I have successfully gotten fvwm-crystal to work properly on 8+ computers with intel and nvidia video cards. Now I get stuck with my first computer with a radeon, and I'm having trouble with transparency.

fvwm-crystal typically sets the background with habak, which works great on all other 8+ computers, however whenever habak tries to set it using this machine:
Code:
File 'test.png' is not an image
If I set the background with fvwm-root, it works, however transparency is not correct... the windows is COMPLETELY transparent, even though I have set the dim factor so text is easier to read. It does not dim at all, its like looking straight through to the background, if you know what I mean?
So I've found this happens with urxvt but not with aterm, even though in .Xresources I have URxvt.shading:30 and ATerm.shading:30. URxvt works fine with that shading on all of my other computers.

First off, I'm using the following versions:
Code:
[ebuild   R   ] x11-wm/fvwm-2.5.19  
[ebuild   R   ] x11-themes/fvwm-crystal-3.0.4  
[ebuild   R   ] x11-base/x11-drm-20060608  
[ebuild   R   ] x11-base/xorg-server-1.1.1-r4  
[ebuild   R   ] x11-base/xorg-x11-7.1
