No, at least not in the version available in ubuntu. You could file a feature 
request with the WindowMaker team if you want.

As David said, this works fine in GNUstep under X11 as long as you use the 
default (cairo) backend, and your window manager and X server supports it. I 
use Gnome's metacity, and for transparent windows to work you have to turn on 

I don't think GS supports transparent windows on Windows but it would probably 
be pretty easy to do.
