Yea, this USED to work for me (when I used XEARTH), but when I switched 
to XPLANET, it quit!  Now, the "transparent" background of each icon 
correctly shows the background produced by xplanet, but the full square 
of the icon is clickable and windows are covered up by the full square 
of the icon.  With xearth, the icons were "truly transparent" and only 
the visible part of the icon was clickable.  This allowed windows to 
appear BEHIND the icons, which is what I think this guy and I want! 
If anyone could tell me the difference between xearth and xplanet, which 
might cause this, that would probably solve the issue.
