Posting for completion. The actual key (the above is wrong) is :
$ gconftool-2 -s -t string /desktop/gnome/background/picture_filename
Anyway, I am working around the regression by generating a unique file
name and deleting the previous one.
I have no idea how long the cache trail is, but I am not changing the
image too often so perhaps it will be okay.
