it sounds like you set an image for your root window in Gnome, but when Metacity (or Sawfish, whichever 1.4 uses) loads, it's not reading the same image for its background.. so you're probably going to have to look in the docs for Metacity or Sawfish to find out how to change the background in that particular WM..
Gnome is actually *not* your WM.. Gnome is a set of interface libraries and widget sets that the Metacity and Sawfish WM's use for their display.. the libraries present an interface for programmers to use when writing GUI applications.. the widget sets are the "look'n'feel" of the DE...Their code will be beautiful, even if their desks are buried in 3 feet of crap. - esr
