Known issues on ICS:
- Hiding Bar gesture will remove home screen wallpaper.
- Hiding Bar gesture will reset your wallpaper to default.

There is no problem with Live Wallpaper. I suggest using "simple image wallpaper" from market on ICS, that will fix wallpaper disappearing (it is Live Wallpaper based still image).
