I don't have any files or folders on the desktop normally, but I've
tested this and it does fail as above and in the video. I've filed a bug
#1179167 if you'd like to click 'effects me' and add anything, although 
amjjawad's video shows the problem very well so I'm not sure anything 
else needs to be said at the moment.
