    Changing the screen saver authenticate background
    Just let me preface, I already know how to change the login screen background -- that's not what I want to do.

    When I wake my macbook from sleep or screensaver, it asks me to authenticate (as it should). But the background of the authenticate screen is a boring blank black screen. Is there some plist property I can tweak to get a pretty picture (like my desktop/login backgrounds) to display there?

    I've been googling an answer for a day or two now and can't find anything.
