gnome-desktop commit causes XServer breakage

Hi everyone,

Last week I pushed this patch by Ray [1] on gnome-desktop master. The
patch is intended to make background fade work properly at login, as
it's explained in the linked bug report [2].

Unfortunately, the patch, although correct, triggers a crash in the X
server every time gnome-desktop tries to set a background; I actually
pushed that to master by mistake, as I had it in my tree for testing,
and Ray made me notice it was upstream only today (sorry about that).

So, the options are now:
- revert the patch from gnome-desktop master and make another release,
which I would happily take care of
- test the Xorg patches at [3], which are supposed to fix similar X
crashes, and if they do fix this too, make sure every distributor ships
them together with 3.0.

I personally slightly lean towards the safest revert approach at this
