Adobe Captivate 4: How to change slide background

I am currently updating the backgrounds on a previously recorded C4 movie. First, I did a quick recording of our application's new UI  with C4. Then I copied the screenshots individually and pasted it into the master demo using the 'Paste as Background' option. It worked fine and all of the slide objects remained as it.  However when I played the movie, I noticed that the screen would quickly show the old background when an action like a mouse click or typing occurred. This flicker shows old menu labels and makes the recording look very choppy. I was told that this was a bug so I downloaded a trial version of C5. The problem behaves worse in C5.

I am hoping that there is a work around of some sort. Any help offered willl be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried applying a different Master Slide? I would try that, as it would change the background to all your slides and discard any old backgrounds.
