Maybe you find these useful too:
Code: [Select]
URxvt*scrollstyle: plain
URxvt*thickness: 6
URxvt*scrollColor: #454545

The same can be done with Fluxbox:

By adding the following to ~/.fluxbox/apps
Code: [Select]
[app] (name=aterm-desktop) (class=XTerm)
  [IconHidden] {yes}
  [Sticky] {yes}
  [Layer] {12}
[end]

Then start aterm like this
Code: [Select]
aterm -name aterm-desktop -geometry 80x50+0+114 -bl +sr -tr -trsb -sh 80 &

thanks!
the slimmer scroll URxvt* scrollstyle thickness scrollColor   settings look better
with fluxbox
 uncommenting  'background: none'   disables fluxbox / lastwallpaper eg
~/.fluxbox/overlay
Code: [Select]
! The following line will prevent styles from setting the background.
background: none
