Log Message:
Changed it so that if dynamicBitmap is set to off, only the necessary bitmap files will load into memory.  This required modifying the load order of the main client function, so that the reset_defaults is called before newwin.  Reset_defaults loads the .netrekrc values, which is necessary for reading in what bitmaps the user wants to load.  Newwin, among other things, saves the bitmaps into memory.  To the best I can tell, changing the order has no unintended side effects.
