the applet with example image selected

'Configure Desktop and Wallpaper' applet when applying a single image won't use files with a hashmark in the name;
taking out the hashmark fixes it

1. name an image with a hashmark part of the name, ie the character '#' (blanks irrelevant)
2. start 'Configure Desktop and Wallpaper'
2. select folder-view -> image
3. 'add image' , pick the image file with the # in the name
4 select the image just added, click apply

wallpaper not changed

image to be used as wallpaper

only tried on X11; seems like trying wayland would make no difference
