Holy cow..  I just read this a couple of weeks ago and actually found the image...  it's actually a 'x' on a light-gray background that is tiled on the screen....  I'm not sure what would happen if you were to mess with it..
Wish I could remember the name and local...  think it was in X11 directories somewhere...  

Sorry I couldn't be more specific..
