I'm looking in /etc/skel, and I see a .gnome directory--as I don't have
Gnome installed, it seems to be empty on my machine.  So, perhaps moving
that somewhere temporarily might handle those files--they sound like
Desktop files, possibly Gnome related.  (A guess on my part, as, when I
tried creating a test user on my system, there was no Downloads directory. 

I do seem to remember either firefox or Chrome creating that directory at
some point when I downloaded a file--it may have even been something like
the directory does not exist should I create it and me clicking OK.
