+Summary: FileDialogs/FolderBrowserDialog: Win32 wrong Desktop folder used
+On my Windows machine I've relocated my user files to drive D.  Thus I 
+have remnants of the special-folder 'Desktop' on C, and the real one on 
+D.  All the Mono dialogs display the contents of the old one. :-(
+Displaying all the special-folder locations from Mono and MSFT show the 
+same locations and both show two items thus:
+* (0x00000000) Desktop               : C:\Documents and 
+* (0x00000010) DesktopDirectory      : D:\Documents and 
+In the Environment.SpecialFolder enum (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-
+us/library/system.environment.specialfolder.aspx) the descriptions are:
+* Desktop -- The logical Desktop rather than the physical file system 
+* DesktopDirectory -- The directory used to physically store file objects 
+on the desktop. 
+Do not confuse this directory with the desktop folder itself, which is a 
+virtual folder.
+And there's similar text at the Win32 equivalent 
+So it seems that MWFVFS (?Managed WinForms Virtual FS) in Theme.Places in 
+Theme.cs should use:
+   return Environment.GetFolderPath(
+                 Environment.SpecialFolder.DesktopDirectory);
+rather than E.S.Desktop
