Strange folder appearing in KDE

I recently discovered that a folder called "desktop" appeares sometimes on my Mandriva desktop running KDE. strangely this folder refers to /var/lib/gnome/desktop

Is this a common problem?

And When I remove it, it just comes back....not everytime though

why are you removing that folder??
deleting directories like that without knowing what they do
can cause un-forseen problems to the extent that you might have
to re-install the OS .......
