problem after aterm upgrade

I just upgraded from aterm 0.3.4 to 0.3.6 and the transparency has
stopped working under certain conditions.

It works fine for "normal" use, but fails when used with mutt
(compiled with slang 1.3.7).  For those who may be unfamiliar with it,
mutt colors text contextually, but can preserve the "default"
background.  Mutt did (and still does) work fine with aterm 0.3.4.

xemacs also colors text (in aterm) and the transparency works
correctly there.  

Any ideas? (other than "switch back to 0.3.4" :)
