Steps to reproduce:
1) right click on desktop and select "Change Desktop Background"
2) select "Add Wallpaper"
3) navigate to png or jpg and select that image
- The selected image does not show up in the above file display
- The selected image should appear in the background file display and
should be selected as the current background.
I should note that I can open up the image in epiphany and right click
"Set as background" and that works correctly. I believe this bug is
related to bug#131113. I can remove an image that is already in my
background list, and re-add it. Shown below are the results of `file`
on the image that I removed/then added again (existing.jpg), and one
of many new images that won't add to the list (new.jpg).

Closed not a bug ... adding the gamin package seems to have resolved
