Change the wallpaper of a locked workstation

When I lock my PC (which is on a domain so it locks - not fast user switching), how can i change the background image from just a black background to a nice wallpaper?  Using windows xp sp2.

What does your wallpaper look like when it is not locked?  Black?  When the machine is locked it should use the wallpaper/background that is normally set when logged in.

Could it be because my wallpaper is in png format and not jpg or bitmap?
