Yup, same problem for me.
What a stupid frikken thing for Apple to change!!!! No notes in the update to say they were "fixing" this feature 8(

To be honest, this was never an officially supported "feature" under Lion, and it is fairly well known (by me anyway) that as such, it is possibly going to be broken in a future update.
I do agree that it is necessary in some environments to assure the end user knows in no uncertain terms that the machine they are logging into is not "their property". The login text is insufficient for some users, as "who takes the time to read stuff?" (shrug) A custom login screen background introduces the user to that condition without assuming a level of attention that is not in evidence.
I also agree you should not HAVE to be a developer to change the basic OS environmental characteristics like backgrounds. It is, at the least, annoying.

Yes, it's clearly not a feature. It's a harmless, unsupported tweak that I enjoy. Naturally, it could be broken by an update. I'm just wondering if anyone knows where Apple is hiding the login bckground now.

I have tried updating the dock background, and the loginwindow plist settings, nothing seems to be able to find it. I am going to try one other thing and will let you know if it does/does not work.

I think it is under the setup assist package contents. I am going to give it a try and will let you know what happens.

It worked only for the server version, but it was really really pixelated.
