Esetroot (Eterm) error - starting Eterm in transparent mode?

I'm using Enlightenment and trying to get Eterm to start in transparent mode. I inserted exec Eterm -O into my ~/.Xclients-default script, which brings up a non-transparent Eterm. Ok, here's the weird thing. When I manually click on 'toggle transparency,' Eterm goes transparent, no problem. When I start /usr/bin/Eterm from an existing terminal as user, it starts in transparent mode. However, when I start Eterm from an existing terminal as root, I get an Eterm: Error: Unable to load image file "tile/somerandomfilename.jpg" -- Unknown error. This looks suspiciously like the error message I get from Esetroot, which is Esetroot: Unable to load image file "randomimagefile.jpg".

Since the -O option uses the root background for transparency, is it possible that my problem is that Esetroot doesn't work? Anyone know if there's anything that can be done to correct this?

Bit of a late reply, but if you loose the entry in ~/.Xclients-default script, start Eterm inside Enlightenment, get it like you want, then from the leftmost menu item save the settings, then 'remember' it with Enlightenment, should work.
