I'm running Windows Server 2008 and Windows XP clients attached to the domain.
The local user has a background image specified, which I am trying to override with a GPO.

The image file is available on the server, and is successfully copied to the local workstation.
The Client side extensions update is installed on the workstation and other user-based GPO settings are working.
Here are all the settings in the desktop GPO:
