Bug Description

When you use the same wallpaper on logon screen and the desktop, there is a little flickering.

Is there any way to link greeter and pantheon for a better transition, or something like that

Although, my patch addresses my hidpi scenario (scale factor > 1) and my wallpaper aspect is same as my monitor aspect of 16:9

This bug is occurring likely due to aspect ratio mismatch between wallpaper and monitor and/or mismatch in greeter scaling (fit to screen) versus gala desktop wallpaper scaling method (fit, zoom, scale, stretch).
