[Bug 242015] Default .fvwm2rc file in the FVWM package is idiotic.

I suspect because you're trying to load a JPG file which FVWM doesn't have
support for. Or, you're simply attempting a literal command of:

Exec exec fvwm-root file.png

Which, without the actual path to file.png will result in the file most likely
never being found. The CVS version of FVWM makes fvwm-root at least search the
ImagePath, so this at least increases the likelihood of file.png being found if
it exists in the ImagePath for instance.

Or, you're using FVWM 2.4.X which doesn't have fvwm-root, but rather xpm-root,
which just loads XPM files, oddly enough.

Using xli really isn't the best way to go, IMO. Look again at fvwm-root (with
possibly the '-r' flag) and/or at least the FvwmBacker module if you want to go
down that route.
