Same problem here....

Yup, I'm having the same problem. Running on an iPhone 3G FW : 2.2
I upgraded a few minutes ago and now my backgrounds won't work, no text on home screen(shows custom icon but not the names), I have reinstalled winterboard twice and still no luck.

Great update. I'm consistently getting 2-3 addition MB.

How to do that?
Create new folder Per Page Wallpaper within /stast/themeXXY/
Copy your png files to that folder,naming them
Page0.png (page 1)
Page1.png (page 2)
Page2.png (page 3)
Activate it in winterboard

... try this ....
1) Using WinSCP, Commands, Open Terminal
2) On iPhone
Settings/Wallpaper, select picture, set a wallpaper. (A new LockBackground.jpg was created)
3) Using WinSCP/Terminal (from #1 above)
cp /var/mobile/Library/LockBackground.jpg /var/mobile/Library/Themes/Your-Theme-Name/Page'X'.png
don't forget to substitute a number [0,1,2 ...] for 'X'
4) Repeat 2-3 for each page (Page1.png, Page2.png, Page 3.png ...)
Respring or activate your new theme in Winterboard
Note 1: If you don't want a custom image for one of your springboard pages, omit that PageX.png. Winterboard uses the default 'black' background.
Note 2: If you have the patience and good typing skills, this can also all be done within MobileTerminal (without WinSCP or an external computer). The sequence and commands are identical.

pre97lude: which theme is that? I haven't seen it elsewhere.

I can't use that iphonebrowser program to put this stuff into the library/themes directory?
