No problem with WIN ,gimp may use jpg, png and several other format for pattern

Only problem may be the pattern image size i believe max accepted is around 

But if you want use for BG you may bypass the limit simply opening your pattern 
as was a image using
File/open as layer 

In this  case if you need to tile you will find some build in filter
hem i am a little vague here because for tiling i always use the "Array" 
filters included in the gmic plugin
(simple array or mirrored array ) and never the built in option

On your Window VIsta? Good luck :)

Actually, I've just tried adding JPEG files to patterns folder,
refreshed the list without restarting GIMP and it worked.
