I picked up and tweaked up some python code I found on the web that randomizes Gnome's background image similarly to how OS X does it.

Just download it, place it somewhere, and setup a cron job to run the script every so often.  Make sure you modify the BG_DIR variable in it to point to a directory relative to your home directory that contains images.
