Well, to be honest, it took me a while to find it too... I had no idea (nor could I have guessed) it was called history-desktop-icon either.  I eventually resorted to adding a few easily-recognisable pathnames to the history list, then just grepping my dotfiles for those pathnames.  I was actually surprised it was stored in gconf at all, some things like that used to be more commonly stored as plain text configuration files in ~/.gnome2 or elsewhere.
