Desktop Icons on Mandrake 9.1

This probably isn't a very technical question, but it is something that has been bothering me for a little while now, so I thought I'd ask and see if anyone knows what's going on.

I've placed icons for KPPP and Mozilla on my KDE desktop so that I don't have to navigate the menus in order to run them (I use them quite frequently). I've modified the KPPP icon by adding "-c ISP" to the command line so that it will automatically connect. I've also changed the icons for both shortcuts.

Frequently Mandrake changes these icons. The command line for KPPP reverts back to the default command line and the icons for both shortcuts change back to the default icons. I used to think that maybe something was happening after I logged off and then back on, but it even happened while I was logged on.

This isn't a major issue, but I just thought I would see if anyone knew why it might be doing this. No other icon seems to be affected. It also seems to be confined to KDE as Gnome seems to work perfectly.

Thanks in advance.
