	What does "not update accordingly" mean?  It doesn't update when
you change bg images, or move the window, or both?  I have no problem with
moving the window and the handles updating.  And from what I recall - I
don't sufer any problems from changing the bg image (Not something I do
alot of).

!   BackPixmap 129 Red
! ~MyStyle

	From what i can tell, the Wharf prefers the colors to be 8bit rgb
values.  I to received errors when using color names directly.

	The ModulePath is defined in the base.#bpp file, therefore not
requiring the modules binaries to be anywhere.  Simply define the path and
the modules will be found.
