Enlightenment minimize windows disappear

Not all of them mind you. All you enlightenment users out there... (this is a recent development) when I minimize an Eterm the icon box recognizes that something was minimized (I can tell by the resizing of the scrollbar) but no icon is there for Eterm. Also when I move the icon box it seems to forget to redraw itself... almost like its locked up.

any suggestions or ideas? perhaps a recompile?

Ok, got some more details... this behavior only occurs with Eterms and the occasional Limewire.

I've experimented a bit and usually from my menu Eterm is invoked as follows...
'Eterm --trans --shade 50' ... this recently got changed to
'Eterm --trans --shade 70'... it is this '--shade 70' portion that is causing the problem.

If I execute with --shade 50 then it minimizes and I see an icon... however if I execute with --shade 51 then it minimizes and it disappears. Sounds like perhaps I need to hard-config an icon to the Eterm app... suggestions on how to do this please.

thanks again,
