I want to create a wallpaper slide show that will not change five minutes after the wallpaper gets displayed, but five minutes after the entire desktop get viewed. Does anyone know of a way to do this?

What if you check with "Xlib python library" or "wmctrl and xwininfo commands" what windows are not minimized? (Filtering windows like gnome-panels, etc). Depending on values (all app windows are minimized = entire desktop get viewed) and selected time delay you can create a xml slideshow with desired background image.
