Thanks for the info. I've greped through the source and found that the themes in fluxbox-0.9.14/data/styles still use the command bsetroot. The fix is a sed and grep combination

sed -i 's at bsetroot@f&@' $(grep -lr " bsetroot" data/styles)

I hadn't seen the problem because I had set a background with fbsetbg or (to investigate fbsetroot) I called it by name, which worked.
