Fluxbox Random Background problem

When I use fbsetbg -r (dir) it does set a random background but it's not streched fullscreen, theres black borders around it. When I load any pic nornmally with just fbsetbg (pic) it streches fine. Is there a way to stretch to my screen and randomly select the pic? thx.

This is how I do it:

1. You first need 'shuffle':

2. This is the root command I use to set a random background:
rootCommand:    fbsetbg /home/max/wallpapers/slackware/`ls /home/max/wallpapers/slackware | shuffle | head -n 1`
