We used to have a problem where gnome-settings-daemon or something else
would read the background keys, and then re-set all of them to the same
values unnecessarily.  Nautilus would then pick up several key changes,
and redraw the background each time.  I believe the timeout comes from
that old problem.

I don't know if it still happens.  Can someone test this?  Write a
program that monitors the background-related keys, and have it print the
time when the keys get changed.  Start the session, and see if the
program prints anything - it shouldn't.

[You could also use such a program to test that the background capplet
only changes one key at a time.  If Elijah's "immediate changes" work,
there should not be a need for a change set.]
