There is a workaround for this problem:

Use ALT-F2 to open a prompt, type in "caja" (without the quotes) and voila,
the desktop icons appear, and a right-click context menu too, aas well as
an instance of caja. close the caja and the desktop remains.

This isn't the way it should work, but it is at least usable.
