I downloaded this for use recently, got it set up and even improved on it a bit... unfortunately, it was only after this that I realized that it uses colors that the status bar uses. In order to look good, it has to overwrite the status bar colors, destroying it in the process. This is even in direct violation of one of the "tips of the day" shown at the top of the site:
"Don't overwrite the status bar colors with the background's palette."
I also downloaded this
one and found that it has a similar problem, although not nearly as unusable. (It only overwrites three colors instead of all ten.)
I have to wonder how many more backgrounds by this creator have this problem, or if any others have the same problem overall...
