Bug Description

A really small bug. If the path to the background image includes Unicode characters, Gnome saves them in URL encoded format in the configuration system. QML doesn't implicitly convert percent encoding to Unicode, thus the image cannot be loaded by unity-2d resulting in the background missing when using unity-2d-spread (e.g. during changing workspaces).

unity-2d used: recent 4.0 branch, revision 730
Ubuntu version: 11.10
