Description of problem:
Discovered this by setting my background to an image in mmy home directory then absent-mindedly deleting the image. My background changed to white at the next login, and when I tried to run gnome-background-properties via the right-click menu, the application crashed consistently.
I was able to work around this by un-setting the key in gconf-editor (at which point g-b-p worked again), but a user without this knowledge would be stuck with a broken background and no way to fix it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set a background image
2. Delete image
3. Run gnome-background-properties
Actual Results: The application gnome-background-properties has unexpectedly quit.

Didn't test this extensively, but at first glance, it seems this was fixed
somewhere along the way.
