Windows 7 Desktop Slideshow

I'm beta testing Windows 7.  One of the things that I've found is that the desktop slideshow does not always work.  I've created some of my own Styles (themes) with the use of desktop slideshows and sometimes it just sticks on the same wallpaper and will not change.  Does anyone know what process/service controls the desktop slideshow?  Anyone else have this problem?

Watch Question

I read something on Technet about that issue in build 7000. If I remembe the article it was corrected or at least better in build 7022. I will try and find the blog.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

I've found that this is a bug in build 7000 of Windows 7.  If I let it go, it eventually changes and the slideshow resumes.
