    Maybe this is your problem. Have you never been told DON'T do this. SDB:Login as root - openSUSE

    Check in the settings to restore previous session.

    It's not a good idea on any system, openSUSE or Fedora. I suppose you've migrated from Windows at some point, where the default account is an administrator, and most users log into this account for general use. Even MS advises against this though, as it raises many risks. Use "su," "kdesu," or "gnomesu" for administrative tasks. It's never necessary to log into the root desktop.

    How are you changing your background? From the Gnome Control Center?
