After looking into 2) I've found that this is working by design. 
According to
the home link is designed to point to $HOME.  I propose that we change
this and make the home desktop link configurable and independent of the
shell's conception of $HOME.

While I can understand Alex's thinking on the importance of $HOME, I
doubt if new users will agree.  In my experience, every new user I've
put on GNOME invariably tries to use nautilus as a web browser (this is
probably due to their experience with Explore).  So for them, nautilus
is a web browser and home is a homepage (location, whatever).
