The solution to this would be to run something like 'xsetroot' or 'xsetbg'
after login (see the respective man-pages).

This could be run, depending on your personal preferences, in
/etc/X11/xdm/Xstartup_0 (which is normally run, if you're using xdm, after
you successfully login, whichever user you are), or alternatively in
~/.xsession (which is your personal set of start-up commands). 

In general, it is not appropriate to cross-post a question like that to
-devel.  -devel is intended for discussion of development issues, or
problems with the cutting-edge (slink) distribution.
