background and sound question

I have just upgraded to AfterStep 1.5beta5 from version 1.4.55n6.  I
have successfully reconfigured my look and feel files for this new
version.  However, when I try to set the desktop background from the
start menu (start->Decorations->Pictures->Waves.xpm) nothing happens.
I have restarted a number of times with no success.  I have checked to 
see that the ~/G/L/A/non-configurable/0_background has the background
I have chosen (it does).  I am currently setting my background with
xv.  In the previous version, AfterStep set the background for me.
Does this not work in 1.5beta5 or am I missing something.  

Also, I get a buzzing noise everytime I move my mouse now.  I didn't
get this odd noise in the 1.4 version.  Any ideas on this???

Thanks for your help.

P.S.  I tried to go to the #afterstep irc channel on EFnet, but I
don't think I was very successful.  Could someone please tell me an
irc server that is connected to EFnet??  I don't know that the server
I am using is on EFnet.  

Thanks again.
