I have set these atoms, and they work when nautilus is not drawing the background.

As for setting the gnome_config Background/Default/wallpapers setting, this does not work well for me.
I manipulate the image before drawing it.  I det the size or tile it  how i think is approriate.  If there is NO way to
pass the image I create then I will have to find a way to work with this (a /tmp file perhaps).  Ideally I would like to
pass a reference it nautilus of the image or set something in X like the above atoms.
