Package: desktop-base
Version: 4.0.0
Severity: important


I think this is a regression (at least for the GNOME desktop) which got
noticed by several people now that should get addressed before etch:

This seems to have changed in commit #58 of debian-desktop:

6 weeks ago  	
"reduce size of debian-blueish-wallpaper.svg"

It indeed reduced the size of the .svg greatly by a factor of 10, but it
also changed the appearence, which I think should get addressed.


Are there issues besides the size with the old svg which needs to
get addressed?  

If not, can either you or André maybe provide a smaller svg?  

If yes, and no quick fix via svg is possible, can we maybe revert to a
png of the above good svg?
