Get the name of the current desktop image

On my multi-monitor setup under 10.4.5, it produces an error, "Can't get displayed name of missing value..."

When I tried this,
tell application "Finder" to get desktop picture
...the result was the string, "missing value" so it seems that it's literally trying to get the name of a string "missing value."

I guess having two monitors makes a big difference. Or else Apple changed something in 10.4.6.
