Look in ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs and be sure you have the following line
Code:

XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/Desktop"
maybe for some reason you have XDG_DESKTOP_DIR set to $HOME.

Worked for me
 
Just wanted to say that I was having the same problem(in Fedora 11), and the issue was indeed in my .config/user-dirs.dirs file. This may have something to do with the fact that I have /home on another partition and had just installed Fedora using the /home which was previously used by Ubuntu.
