is it possible to re-open the question? Cause now I've git the same bug and 13.04 should be considered stable now. – Daniel Apr 28 '13 at 23:19

Ubuntu 13.04 is currently still in development so this will likely be resolved once it releases. And it is policy not to answer to bugs in dev versions.

But to at least give you a hint, could you check if the 'backgrounds' folder is present and has pictures in it? To do this type

nautilus /usr/share/backgrounds
