Does this happen every time you start up?
I have had one of the default xfce ones as a background for ages, always
checked and never seen this.

I can't really think how this would have happened.  Do you store your
background on an NFS mount which had vanished one time you started X?
I'm clutching at straws to explain this but since I use this and have
never seen it happen I'm a bit confused.
