kde- screenshot of the session on the background. Or an emulator

I'm using kde (debian lenny)

I prepared a script using xautomation which is doing funny things by clicking on screen.
It simply click on screen locations and takes screenshots and saves them. It works.

I run the script and at the same time, I start another session in order to continue my daily life (previous session continues on ctrl_alt_F7). But then script does not do what I want. It moves mouse(I'ts OK). It does not click and the screenshot I've taken is like a dirth. It is only a dirty black-white page.

It is no surprise at all, I know that it clicks, but it clicks on nothing, how can a session on the background has buttons to click and screenshot to take.

Can I do something so that session on the background has a screenshot to take?

Or do you know how to start a session on an emulator so that I ran my script and take screenshots without interrupting daily life?

Thanks, If you have a solution, I'll be soo happy. I worked in order to create the script a lot and 1 don't want it to be a vaste of time.
