  nautilus/nemo crashes when changing the wallpaper

Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:
Status in nemo package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Nautilus very often crashes when I change the wallpaper in System
  Settings -> Appearance. Sometimes it crashes immediately, other times
  only after changing the wallpaper then switching between different
  work-spaces. Nautilus also crashes every few hours when the time-
  cycling Community wallpapers is enabled.

  Nemo shows the exact same behavior.

  When running Nautilus or Nemo  from the terminal, an error similar to
  the following is spat out:

  (nautilus:23530): Gdk-ERROR **: The program 'nautilus' received an X Window System error.
  This probably reflects a bug in the program.
  The error was 'BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)'.
    (Details: serial 10509 error_code 9 request_code 62 (core protocol) minor_code 0)
    (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
     that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
     To debug your program, run it with the GDK_SYNCHRONIZE environment
     variable to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
     backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
