I have been trying for weeks to figure this one out.  I have a program that 
creates a calendar, saves a pict of the calendar and I can even create the 
proper alias that the appearance manager should use to update the desktop, 
yet no amount of invalrect or refresh the desktop works until you go to the 
appearance manager and select to update the desktop.  Good stuff so far.... 
anybody have any other ideas???
