I ended up rebooting and everything is back to normal.

Is it possible that Nautilus is holding four copies on the background
images?

1 for each desktop  (two of them,  and I had the images scaled)

and it changes  on startup, automatically by a script, to one of the
other backgrounds.
    hence 2 desktops,  X 2 copies all scaled and therefore stored in
Nautilus.
