window icon

I am trying to figure out how to set the window icon (the little image in the corner of the window and in the alt-tab pager) for windows that are using the default icon "$(prefix)/share/pixmaps/openbox.png" (on my system it is "/usr/local/share/pixmaps/openbox.png"). Oddly, changing that file does nothing to the default icon, even after system reboot.

Does anyone know how/where to put a file "Eterm.png" so Eterm gets the new window icon? I want to do this for various programs that don't have a window icon, but Eterm is a good example. "Eterm --icon Eterm.png" is ignored, or doesn't do the right thing, with openbox.
