[maemo-users] Desktop icons disappeared after reboot

I'm running PR 1.2 on my N900. I'm mainly using it as a mapping device.

Yesterday I replaced the battery. After the reboot, all desktop icons 
(shortcuts, widgets) have disappeard except for some bookmarks I saved on the 
desktop. Further, I now cannot add any desktop icons. When I'm in editing mode 
and klick on the desktop menu, nothing happens. Additional reboots didn't cure 
the problem.

I have not applied any changes to the system recently. I neither did install 
or update any applications, not did I log in via ssh or fiddle around with a 
root shell. Except for the extras repository I have not enabled any other 

The outputs of mount respectively dmesg are here:

As far as I can judge there's nothing suspicious in the outputs.

I'd prefer to repair the system instead of reflashing it. If anyone knows a 
hint or can point me to a resource please do not hesitate to drop a line.

Thanks in advance,
