Question refreshing icewm background

Anybody know a command I could put in a cron or pearl script to force
icewm to reload my background? I want to display some weather images I
download every half hour on my desktop and wmsetbg says "could not find
image file used in texture" xset root says "unable to open display '/home/ka9qlq./icewm/meteosat.jpg'" Ideas welcome.
