  XDG "Desktop" item not translated on Live CD

Bug description:
  When I switch the language on my Oneiric Live CD, other XDG
  directories are translated except the "Desktop" item. When I have a
  look inside ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs, the string is untranslated
  (other strings in the file are translated all right). If I run xdg-
  user-dirs-update, ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs is updated to the correct
  translation. So I suppose that the default Live CD user is created by
  some not-localized hackish solution.

  If this seems not so important, since installed systems have the
  "Desktop" directory translated all right (at least I hope so, because
  my system has), it certainly affects all Ubuntu localized Live-CDs and
  makes them fail the basic "translated or not surface check".
