Public bug reported:

The Ubuntu settings app used to allow choosing how the background image
would fit the window (tiled, stretched, centered). It no longer offers
any choices, backgrounds are always stretched.

(Other approaches, like alt-clicking on an image in Firefox, still allow
me to set a tiled background, so clearly the system is still capable of
it, but it has vanished from the settings UI.)

The settings app also seems generally sparser and less functional than
before, which is off-putting.
