This also appears to be a different problem, as I can (as far as all
software indications) change the picture and its geometry, but have
nothing actually displayed on the screen.  My desktop is black with the
various icons displayed on top of it regardless of my selections of
picture and/or geometry.  I have tried selecting the pictures that come
with the distribution as well as pictures in my personal folders, to no
avail; all I get is a black background.
