aterms not listening to -tr

Hey all,

I have a box where I've been using aterms (using transparency) in debian with 
blackbox for a while, and they work perfectly.

But I just setup another box nearly identically... and aterms won't become 
transparent. I launch them with:
aterm -tr -trsb -sh 55 -fg white -bg black &

And the background is always opaque (and obviously black). The scrollbars are 
transparent, but not the actual window. I cannot, for the life of me, figure 
out why -tr won't work on this new box. Any help is welcome.
