I may have the solution for you, but to test if it will be the solution for you, then do the following:Right-click at your desktop, choose "Settings", then "Compositor" and "Disable Compositing". If the icons now look as they are supposed to, then enable compositing again (Settings-Compositor-Enable Compositing).Does the icons still look good?
Maybe try turning off compositing? That helps keep the CPU use down a bit, in my experience. Go to Openbox (right click on on the desktop) menu, Settings, Compositor, Disable compositing. Remove the compositor from the Openbox autostart file (Settings>Openbox>Edit autostart) to make the change permanent.Hope this helps
I think the "wm_menu=1" option is the default on the waldorf tint2 panel -- it allows you to bring up the openbox main menu when the tint2 panel is right-clicked (for example, when there is no free space on the desktop).When you say "context menu" what do you mean exactly?
Openbox starting place: Openbox wikiMenu configuration is in ~/.config/openbox/menu.xml, or use the gui menu editor (Settings -> Openbox -> GUI Menu editor)Most folk here quickly come to appreciate the manual menu configuration, and find it "incredibly tedious" to edit it after some app has decided it wants to put its menu item in some obscure location.

By "desktop" do you mean the tint2 panel? If so, go to Settings >> tint2 >> Edit config file in the right-click menu and look for this line in the "Panel" section:panel_position = top center horizontalChange it topanel_position = bottom center horizontalthen restart tint2 from the right-click menu.
