Thanks for the reply! 

Alright this is now driving me crazy. I created a new user (in case I
have some weird setting somewhere in my /home) set a wallpaper using feh
saved the following minimal .Xresources:

    ! Xresources file

    URxvt*inheritPixmap: true
    URxvt*transparent: true
    ! URxvt*shading: 0 to 99 darkens, 101 to 200 lightens
    URxvt*shading: 50

and ran xrdb on it to see if the problem comes from using tintColor 
and shading. but nope this gives me a greyish bg (and with shading 100 
it works just as before).

Am I missing some library or something like that? I feel pretty much
lost now.
