Bug Description

Even in raring, the slideshow provided in the "ubuntu-wallpapers-karmic" package does not work because of an invalid XML file.

The fix is straight forward:
In /usr/share/backgrounds/contest/karmic.xml (contest/karmic.xml in the source dir)

<transition>
    <duration>5.0</duration>
    <from>/usr/share/backgrounds/Sunset.jpg</from>
    <to>/usr/share/backgrounds/TheRainbowisDead.jpg</to>
</transition> <-- This one is missing

Just adding it fixes this issue.
AFAIK, there is no regression potential and this fix can be applied on all supported Ubuntu releases.
