This is actualy a feature in AfterStep. If you wish to disable it  -
then go to your    .feel file and comment the following :

# Put a titlebar + various stuff on dialog boxes

That is true. It also is limited to XPM image format.
We are planning on addresing this issue in the patch5 for 1.5beta4
as well as some other improvements to Pager.
