Subsequently, I have re-installed Nautilus and followed these 
instructions, the problem appears to be solved:

Following the hint by kenn 
I verified that my problems are caused by Cinnamon. I never installed it 
myself, but I use Nemo. The package catalogue 
<http://packages.ubuntu.com/saucy/nemo> does not list any Cinnamon 
packages as dependencies for Nemo, but somehow it got fully installed. 
The solution to bring the wallpaper back to functioning order is thus:

|sudo apt-get remove cinnamon* sudo apt-get autoremove |

And afterwards log out and log back in.
