Unlikley. Given that the Library appears correctly in the other apps it suggests that the problem is in Desktop Pictures.
It may be a bunged up cache file.
Hold down the option (or alt) key key and launch iPhoto. From the resulting menu select 'Create Library'
Import a few pics.
Now go to Desktop Pictures and see if you can access these images in the new Library.
If you can
Hold down the option (or alt) key key and launch iPhoto. From the resulting menu select 'Choose Library' and select your original library.

Tried to follow your instructions, but the dialog boxes wich appeared were different from your descriptions; I wound up with an empty library, causing momentary panic. Then a 'library manager' box appeared, and I was able to click on 'default library - rebuilt' , which has restored all my photos....but the photos still will not go into the desktop pictures.
If I can find it again, can I create a new library and import all my photos into it?
Sorry to be a pest, but I'm in a real mess with this.

Have a read of my instructions again.
They describe how to make a new empty library.
Then import some pics to it.
Then try access them via the Desktop Pictures SystemPreference
The how to change back.
Sorry but I din't know how to make that more simple.
