This sounds like gnome might be using old configuration files from your
NB! This will remove any settings e.g. backgrounds that you have set up
If you log out of X (gnome) hit Ctrl-Alt-F2 keys to get to a console and
login as yourself then enter
mv .gnome2 .gnome2.old
mv .gconf .gconf.old
mv .gconfd .gconfd.old
Hit Ctrl-Alt-F7 to get back to login screen
If the issue persists and you have a .gtkrc file in your home directory move
that out of the way.
