This is an annoyance with the splash screen - if you want to change it you
have to overwrite the redhat-splash.png in /usr/share/gnome/pixmaps.
so I modified gnome-core-splash.c and the spec file just a little bit to
make it look for a more default name - and a symlink by default.
the patches to gnome-core-splash.c and the spec file will be attached.

(closing wontfix since we don't want to patch this in as a Red Hat specific change)
