Apparently we do, this is the comment just above the timeout

         * Wallpaper capplet changes picture, background color and
placement with
         * gconf_change_set API, but unfortunately, this operation is
not atomic in
         * GConf as it should be. So we update background after small
timeout to
         * let GConf change all values.          */

Is this a bug in GConf? Was it a bug which has since been fixed? Can
it be fixed? Should it be?
