Commit 65209ffabd9245fac78eeb2caf5bcca3e4963937 changes the default
background.  (This only has an effect for new installations, though.)

It would be good to have a “branded” background, as was suggested in
this thread, but it’s probably a bit more work.

Thanks for putting us on the right track to fix this issue!
