[ubuntu] gnome-screenshot will not use Desktop as destination dir

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – For a while I've been having this problem with the gnome-screenshot utility: I can't save to the desktop. When the dialog opens, the default destination directory is ~/Pictures (I wish it would remember the last used dir, but that's a separate issue). I then click on the dropdown menu and select Desktop. After clicking on Desktop, the text changes to ".fr-20GNNv/" If I click "Browse," the file browser puts me in ~/Desktop with ".fr-20GNNv/" in the filename bar. I can then delete .fr-20GNNv/, click open, and use the desktop. Why is this happening? (Also, things (Hardware)
