 Change from DesktopDirectory to Desktop causes errors for every
 FolderDialog open. Here it looks to be working fine.
 Can you provide a test case sample to demonstrate the problem?

+On Windows I have re-located my user folders (Desktop, My Documents 
+etc) to drive D using Tweak UI, from 
+px.  A test case could only be to run Mono on a machine with such 
+changes made and verify that the correct 'real' folder contents are 
+displayed.  Only special-folder 'Desktop' has the pair of 
+SpecialFolder items.
+I've made this change now to both platforms here and don't see any 
+problems.  I'll investigate further the dependencies between 
+FolderBrowserDialog/etc via MWFVFS/FileSystem etc to Theme.
+What kind of errors did you see Everaldo when you made the change?
+Maybe damning the issue to never being fixed... :-,)  But re-
+location of the special-folders is likely rare, so if there's any 
+risk in the change, that will likely outweigh the benefit...
