I have been having problems with background-properties as well, but only
on my laptop running the XBF neomagic server.

I had assumed it was just due to this server, which is still in
development, but it looks like it may affect other servers as well.

The actual problem seems to occur within GDK when it calls
XGetWindowAttributes for the root window (see GDB dump at end), but 
background-properties is the only program which seems to have this
effect. This is with both the 1.0.4 GDK/GTK and 0.20 gnome realease,
and the latest snapshots of both.

I shall investigate further and see whether it is GDK/GTK,
background-properties or the server that are at fault.
