It appears there is a bug in the /usr/sbin/remove-icons-from-users-desktops script in 
K12LTSP version 6.  After the line

DEST="`basename \"$FILE\"`"

the rm commands should point to $DEST, which is the filename with the path stripped 
away.  However, the rm commands still reference $FILE, which is something like 
/root/Desktop/Icon.desktop, where Icon is the name you gave to the icon.  But since 
$FILE still contains the full path, in this case relative to root's home directory, the 
rm commands won't work because they'll try to delete /root/Desktop/Icon.desktop from 
each users ~/Desktop directory.  Changing the rm commands to use $DEST instead of $FILE 
fixes this.
