Desktop background settings not propagated properly thru desktops

description

Great work, guys.
0.4.1 has a new feature which allows different desktop backgrounds for each virtual desktop. I will report one bug and one feature request:
Bug: initially when backgrounds are not set explicitly for each desktop, VVDM uses the default background image, but with "tiled" background placement, although I set it (before I even installed VVDM) to "fit to screen". So you have to manually adjust the placement for each virtual desktop.
Feature request: it would be nice to have an option to turn off individualized backgrounds, so that user could be able to set the background for all virtual desktops in one go.

Yeah, you're right about that. I'll add that in the next release. I think that the tiled bug is simply caused by "tiled" being the default sizing choice.

0.4.1 - my desktop backrounds usually gets reseted. I run 4 desktops and choose different backrounds for all of them, and then when i shutdown and startup again the same backround apears on all of them (the one showing during shutdown). This is mostly based on theory, ill run some tests and post the results.

done testing, by running 4 desktops, choosing a different picture for all of them, shutting down then starting up, all the pictures get reseted to the same picture as desktop nr.1
