With v4.0 we have four systems competing for controls of the background.
1. dfm, which the dslpanel/backgrounds should now call. wallpaper.lua is deprecated. It will be removed in the next RC
2. jwm: by specifying it in the .jwmrc
3. fluxbox: styles which could have an embedded bgset or xsri command
4. xinitrc: which could also have a manually issued xsri command.
When switching desktops and/or themes who wins control of the background?
Personally, with v4 I try to only use dfm and let it control the background.
I did not remove the embedded backgrounds in certain fluxbox styles as some may wish not to use icons and therefore dfm is out.
Since DSL can be run in so many ways, you may experience this war of the backgrounds.
