used to have bookmarked. Anyone know where to find such a beast?

This will prevent the icon from appearing on new user's desktops:

	chmod go-wrx /usr/share/nautilus/starthere*

It's not immediately obvious how to change the default location on login.

The "reset desktop" just nukes .gnome*,.kde*, and friends; copies over
the .gnome*, .kde*, etc files from /etc/skel/; and then executes the
