    I have a dual monitor setup with my MBP (laptop monitor + additional monitor). I have different wallpapers for each screen. When I unplug my MBP then plug it back in I revert back to one wallpaper being duplicated on both screens. How do I fix this? This setup worked fine for me in Snow Leopard but now that I upgraded to Mavericks it doesn't work.

    If you set the wallpaper by right-clicking a photo and selecting "use as wallpaper", it doesn't always survive restarts. Go into System Preferences and select it there, that seems to work better.

    Yea, just about every time I download updates and restart it reverts to that wave. It usually won't let me change it back until I restart again.
