[CentOS] Desktop cleared after reboot through VNC

Hello all,
After issuing the reboot command on my CentOS server while being logged in
through VNC and after the machine has actually rebooted, I get a blank
desktop (no icons and not my default wall paper) when logging into X,
whether I'm on the console or logging in through VNC.
If I go into my Desktop folder in my home directory, I see all the
appropriate .desktop files (but I don't see the icons on my actual desktop).
When I go to the Preferences->Desktop menu, the desktop preferences
application hangs.  My toolbars, and default xclock at startup are all
there, it's just that my desktop is a solid blue wallpaper (not my default
CentOS wallpaper) and I have no icons on it.  
I guess I corrupted the desktop when I rebooted through VNC but I don't know
how to get it back.
Is there a way of retrieving this without having to delete this user and
creating a new one?
