I wanted to make the gnome-terminal that is opened by
nautilus-open-terminal to open in my home directory instead of the
Desktop. So I clicked in the Configuration-Editor on:
app->nautilus->preferences->Desktop_is_Home_Directory. That seemed to do
what I wanted but it also caused the Desktop mess described above.

To fix the gnome-terminal you need to go to app->nautilus-open-terminal
and click on: Desktop_opens_home_dir

It is all so obvious in hindsight,
