I was a bit overhasty, please excuse that.

The real solution is removing the

DrawBackgroundPerScreen_*=true

lines in [Background Common].

[Desktop0Screen0] does it's share to it as well, but deleting the lines noted 
above seems to be enough. I assume [Desktop0Screen0] contains the settings 
for "overdrawing" the regular screen and does nothing if the line above hasn't 
been specified.

Greetings,

Sandro
