Agreed.. BTW, I've tested the flash at startup fix from Alex Larsson and
it works very well except if you are using a bitmap background :
in this case, at login :
-background_capplet set default bitmap background
-nautilus starts, display its own root window with default background
color (and not default bitmap background) and after, display bitmap
background.. Instead of having a white flash, we have a more colorful
one :))
