  Agreed. Maybe a GtkOptionMenu is a better choiche?
Why? The buttons provide a visual que (preview) of what the desktop will

  Because it takes ages to update the dialog, maybe?

look like for each type of background layout. Using an option menu and
updating a larger image is pointless as changing the preference will
automatically change the desktop background (INSTANT APPLY) and at this
point a preview is worthless. Seth's background design is really nice,
please don't break it.

Indeed. This dialog is actually really nice and visually better than its competitors, but is also pretty slow and I think an OptionMenu or radio buttons with clear labels are just enough to make the user understand what he'll see.
