I ran into this too.  This is what happens.  Say I set my background to be
something OTHER THAN a bitmap like mypic.jpg.  XP converts the jpg to a
bitmap and stores the bitmap under "Local Settings" in the profile, which
of course doesn't roam.  The simple fix that I've been telling my users is
to first convert their background to a bitmap image and store it on a
network drive, then set your background to that image and your background
roams with you.

Works for me.
