Hi, nice to see that you are making this package! I'll be using it

This doesn't work because path_to_data() uses an internal buffer for
its return values, and that gets destroyed by the second call. I guess
that you are using bp.png for both mask and background image. Ok,
please spank me for ever writing something like this.. I'll produce a
fix. In the meantime you can malloc() and strcpy() the paths and it
will probably work.

Thanks! I'll adopt this for installation in usr/local too.

Hope this helps.
