waiting for X server to shut down XIO: fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server ":0.0"
after 61 requests (59 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
/usr/bin/xinit: X server slow to shut down, sending KILL signal.
waiting for server to die ...
/usr/bin/xinit: Can't kill server
Curious Google finds nothing for the string "/usr/bin/xinit: Can't kill server".

01micko created a very simple wallpaper setter using gtkdialog, named appropriately Simple Wallpaper Setter, or just SWS. It had a bug with changing the pinboard, so I hacked it a bit, now it is working for me.
