URXVT transparency and refreshing.

I can't get urxvt to be transparent at all. Under any circamstances. I have tried under fluxbox, openbox and pekwm. I have tried with all the options listed in the manpage. the -tr paramter just gives pseudo transparency and trying to use the ARGB visuals always gives a bluescreen. I know that people have it working under openbox at least, so what am I doing wrong?

Another thing I have noted is that I have a problem with urxvt updating the screen when I delete characters. I have attached a screenshot of what I mean. The reason this is a problem is because I can't see what I type properly in the space where the deleted characters were. What would be causing this, and how can I stop it?
