I would use the -b option as patch until I was able to do better except that I manipulate the image in
memory before setting the background and the gnomecc window pops up.  I've now looked into the
capplet code to find out what im leaving out.  I noticed  a couple small differences but I still can't get
it to draw with nautilus.

Another poster said I have to change gnome_conf settings.  Are these the ones you are referring to
the background_properties_capplet setting?
