Maybe this is useful?

For me too similar problem is happening. Actually the wallpaper is only updating when we click the apply or OK button otherwise it is not refreshing, while we run the program, neither it is updating upon log in.

Same for me, as for Ray. The map only updates if I open up the app and click the Apply button. I have the Start ... on Login checkbox ticked.

Syslog shows the following error on start up:

gtk-sunlight[1832]: segfault at 0 ip 008c919a sp bffcc0cc error 4 in[856000+153000]

I'm on Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop Generic, but with AMD processor.
