Speaking of the -pixmap option,

Key t    A CM Exec "rxvt" rxvt -pixmap `cat /afterstep/mainwindow_background | grep -v #` -fn "-bitstream-courier-*-*-*-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-*-*" -tn xterm-color -geometry 91x45+0+0 -sl 256 +sb -ls -T "TOP" -e top &

does not work, whereas by specifying *.xpm in place of `cat ...`, works.  Yet, if envoked 
with tcsh -c ...., it works with `cat...`.  Anyone know how to get it working with sh?  
Is it \n that's messing things up, if so, how do I get rid of it?
