That "sort of an extension" is nautilus' (imo annoying) property to
create its "desktop window" when it's not already there. To set a
desktop background there you need to tell gnome and nautilus instead
of wmsetbg/feh/display what desktop background you wish. There seems
to be a gconftool-2 way to do that properly [0].
