#1297 TightVNC causes issues with desktop wallpaper that is set by group policy

wallpaper (1)

I've seen this issue with a few versions prior to and with 2.7.10. 32 bit and 64 bit seem to have problems. This problem also occurs with both 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Windows 7.

On any domain computer that has a desktop wallpaper that is set by group policy, whenever connecting to it with TightVNC the desktop background will revert to the Windows default and remain the Windows default after disconnecting. The correct wallpaper doesn't get restored until the user logs on again. If you have the "hide desktop wallpaper" setting disabled on the server, the Windows default wallpaper will appear upon initial connection and remain after disconnecting.

This isn't a show-stopper but it is a major annoyance for me because I maintain kiosks that we wan't to have our custom desktop wallpaper. I am requesting this issue be looked into and resolved.

Thank you.
