I trimmed too much when I quoted - my bad. '-retro' does more than just 
change the background, though.

A snippet from the Xorg man page:

               Immediately  kills  the  server -- no questions asked.  
This is
               disabled by default.  It can be enabled with the -retro 
               line flag or by setting the DontZap xorg.conf(5) file 
option to
               a FALSE value
