Questions about applications and software
Before you post please read this
Occasionally my desktop icons fail to appear and my 'right' mouse click button fails to work on the desktop when icons fail to appear. I have to reboot or with the help of the Mint Forum apply 'ctrl + alt + backspace' to log in again. The 2nd login will restore the icons to desktop and functionally of mouse is restored. Some Mint Forum members advised me it could be a 'nautilus-issue' failing to start. I have been using Mint 6 Felicia for a couple of months and the trouble just started to show within the last couple of weeks. I keep my mint system 'up-to-date' with updates, so it might be related to a recent change.

You are correct this is a Nautilus issue - if you have Gnome
However this is the kind of problem that is most difficult to solve, the "happens occasionally" problem
This might help. Start gconf-editor* and search for the Apps->Nautilus->Preferences->Show desktop key. Uncheck and check the checkbox a few times.
*Use gconf-editor in a terminal or a launcher (Alt+F2)
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
