Even though asetroot can handle running programs in the root 
window I decided to set it from autoconf. But than another 
question came up: How can I change the background color of 
the pager module. Right now it just takes the background color
of xglobe but that's black. And with a black background it's 
kind of hard to see the objects in the pager... Anybody?
