rxvt [-/+ip] is InheritPixmap which is fast artificial
transparency. This is worked around in later 2.7 versions
for applications which set the root background and also set
the _XROOTPMAP_ID atom appropriately. Try upgrading to
2.7.10. Current aterm should also work properly.
If you cc me or remove the list(s) completely I'll most likely ignore
your message. see http://www.eyrie.org./~eagle/faqs/questions.html
