Indeed, and I totally forgot about it. If it works with GNOME there is
a big probability that it updates the background for Nautilus only.
This brings you to two solutions, you write a small daemon that
listens to nautilus background changes and apply them back to
xfdesktop, or you patch webilder in order to update the xfdesktop
background setting in addition to the Nautilus one.

But this is just speculation, I'm cloning the repository and will see
what I can patch :)
