Using Webcollage as a desktop backgroung - Help?

I posted this under "software" but to no avail - I guess it should go here...

I've taken an extream liking to the webcollage applet bundled with xscreensaver. I've been trying to get it to draw my desktop background.

So far, I've almost got it working. I'm running KDE on Fedora core 3. Under Desktop configuration, Background, Advanced options I chose "use the following program for drawing the background" and added webcollage as follows:
Command: kxsrun webcollage -- -root
Preview Command: kxsrun webcollage -- -root
Executable: webcollage
(I also tried Executable: kxsrun)

What this gave me is indeed a beautiful webcollage background, but no desktop icons!
Also, my desktop no longer responds to right clicks.

Anybody know how to solve this?

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

Also, when you don't get replies, you have right to bump your thread after 24 hours. But please don't post it again.
