Description of Problem:
Nautilus doesn't draw embossed backgrounds correctly.
Use gnomecc and choose "embossed" background type. (RH Logo, for
example.) Use Nautilus prefs, and have Nautilus draw the desktop.
When nautilus draws the root window, you get the picture centered, instead
of "embossed" into the background.
"Embossed" background, similar to RH7.0 and RH7.1 default desktop.
Reproduced on two machines (P-III and Crusoe) with two different GFX cards
(ATI Mach64 and 3Dfx VooDoo 2000).
This is indeed broken, filed upstream as
Closing on the Red Hat level.
