My apologies Jeanne,

Two problems with this test:

1.  "stop using" does not purge the stack from memory, and
b.  The Revolution developer's interface loads revimagelibray.rev 
when it starts up again.

When I create a library of my own with my own images, it all works as 
you described.  So an image library can indeed be a runtime 

But I'm still looking for an answer to the multiple background images issue.
