We had this discussion months ago. I was very vocal complaining about this "feature" but the Eazel folks wanted to make it look pretty.

Okay, there can only be one window which is the desktop. Can you tell me
how on earth you justify that that should be cutesy hacks rather than your
file manager?

Huh? How do I justify NOT having the file manager take over the desktop root window? Maybe because it breaks gobs of other programs that I use quite often such as root-tail or any screensaver hack --root and it destroys my E root menus! It makes desktop switching slow.

And for what? Pretty text? Sorry, my text is plenty pretty for me. Seems to me the nautilus way of doing it is the "cutesy hack"
