Also, because of the way the "icons on desktop" thing is implemented, 
it's important to turn them off if you're using a rootless X server 
(like on OSX and, I presume, on the Windows rootless server as well)

Otherwise you have a big X windows pretending to be the root window 
covering up your "real" desktop.
