Desktop Pictures not sticking

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I've had this problem for a long time- on my work computer, the desktop picture settings do not stick across logins or reboots. The desktop pic defaults to the blue swoosh no matter what I do.

I've deleted:

Desktop Pictures.dpImageCache


And rebooted with no sucess. Permissions are repaired, drive structures are intact, and I'm running 10.3.4.

Any ideas?

    Kind of a standard, but have you tried zapping the PRAM? Something that worked well for an issue I was having was using Cocktail and cleaning out the caches. My problem was a sluggish Finder, but perhaps that will help you, too.

    Still haven't figured this one out. They won't stick across reboots.

    If you move the file to a different location after you've selected it for the desktop background, then when you logout/restart it'll revert back to the blue aqua.
