howto set pixmap background for window with xlibs

OK, iv spent the last few days trying to get a window have a background pixmap (i can load the bitmap files created with "bitmap" (I'm not even sure how to sue this, it doesn't appear to draw, but it does output a bitmap/pixmap the server can load)

when i try to set the background the window just disappears... (the window is a sub window if that makes a difference) the other sub wins that either have no background, or solid color background appears nice without problems

anyways, I'm using c and xlibs to handle everything.... is there some trick to getting the window to appears with a background pixmap i chose (i tried to set the background at the time the window is made, and also tried to set it after, the result is the same)
