As a X user and occasional embedded programmer, might I suggest 
something with a pattern?  Even if it's a X logo in the center, or just 
a shapeless blob, or a row and column of white pixels. Anything that is 
recognizable as the X root window.

I've displayed random areas of memory before because my hardware 
framebuffer wasn't where I thought it was, and a black background was my 
clue that something was really wrong.

Just my $0.01, what with the recession here in the US.
