It is always happening with Eterm 0.9.1 (from CVS May 02 2001) in
my computer. It is not too fast. It is permanent. The icewm background
is not restored in Eterm unless I do a "Force Update" in Eterm.
I tried Eterm 0.9 and in fact it does not present the described
behaviour. Maybe the problem is with Eterm 0.9.1.

A "Force Update" after changing the theme restores the background
to the one used by IceWM. But I did not find a way to provent
the behaviour described.
