I have a similar problem. I found out that the wallpaper change was
learned by the workstations, but not applied. If I right-click on the
desktop I see the new wallpaper name, but it's not applied (i.e., I
still see the old one). Clicking OK at that dialog (without changing
anything else) then applies the wallpaper to the desktop.
