Description of problem:
gnome-background-properties is VERY slow in Redhat 9 compared to how it ran on
Redhat 8. For some reason, if you right click on the desktop and choose
'configure background', the CPU gets eaten up by the preferences window that
appear then. When you close the background properties dialog, all is fine again.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Right click on the desktop
2.Configure the background

Actual Results:  It's sloooow...

Expected Results:  It should be fast as it's not a very complex app

Additional info:

It was fine on Redhat 8

The implementation is completely changed in 2.8. It seem fast now.
