That will remove *all* icons from the desktop, indeed. I've run KDE without
desktop icons for a long time but now want to have a few, but certainly not

Amazing how sending mail to the list inspires me trying out another idea:
'rm -rf Trash' in ~/Desktop and *poof* gone is the Trash Can icon :-). Not 
sure if it has ill side-effects though, time will tell.
