minor quirk, but its annoying me - I have my desktop background set to one of the predefined "sets" and to randomly change every 5 minutes (eg. random Nature, or random Abstract).

However, when I lock my screen (by bringing up the login window), when I log back in, OS X always sets my desktop background to the previous "static" image, before switching to the correct random set after 5 minutes. In other words, it doesn't start in the set that I have chosen, but gets there eventually.

Any clues how to resolve this?

Also, can I change the image that appears as the background to the login screen?

Login Back 0.2 - MacUpdate (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/26083/login-back)

Probably the easiest way to do that.

Not sure about your other problem.
