The interplay between docky and the desktop is not easily understood.
But I suspect that interplay caused the happening. Unfortunately I
don't know the details of recovery from this situation. Can you open a
terminal window? If so what directory is it linked to? to list the
home directory ls -la $HOME and see if the directory desktop even exists
and if it exists list the contents ls -la $HOME/desktop this is where
the files are held for the general desk top. You might ask
<nclug at lists.nclug.org> specify the operating system and the generation
of GNOME and see if any useful information comes back. OR of course you
could start over and re-install the operating system.
I am sorry that this has been such a long response but these are some of
the push-ups I would go through in an effort not to loose any possibly
