    no idea, but you could try to trash the finder prefs...

    they are located in home folder/libary/preferences/

    and are called com.apple.finder.prefs

    trash and restart two times

    no explanation for why it's happening but I do have a solution: go into finder prefs and uncheck all the items that are to be shown on the desktop. Make new finder windows open to your home directory in column view and use your desktop solely to display pretty pictures.
