.include clarification

I have a question regarding the interaction of the Pager/background and
.include files.  (I'm using 1.7.99)

Having GNOME on my system, there's a boatload of great background tiles &
images from Propaganda in /usr/share/pixmaps/backgrounds that I'd love to
add to my start menu.  So, in my ~/G/L/A/backgrounds directory I added an
.incluse file with the following:

Include "/usr/share/pixmaps/backgrounds"

and updated the startmenu.  Now under Desktop->Pictures there are folders
corresponding to the tree in /u/s/p/b/ and each .jpg is in my startmenu.
However, I can't use any of them.  The menu item won't highlight and it
doesn't set the root.  It's not a permissions thing.  If I make a
symlink in ~/G/L/A/backgrounds like

ln -s /usr/share/pixmaps/backgrounds/1a.jpg my1a.jpg

Then my1a.jpg appears in the startmenu and works as expected.  Do I have
to issue a command in the .include file?  If so what would that be?
