[Bug 1487943] Re: Ctrl+z after deleting folder on GUI does not restore icon


Doing `xkill` on the Desktop and restarting nautilus from a terminal
restores the icons; I am not (yet) able to reproduce this bug after the
killing that specific instance of Nautilus.

  Ctrl+z after deleting folder on GUI does not restore icon

Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  -What I did
  I had 6 items in ~/Desktop
  I deleted two (specifically, by deleting 1 then the other with the DEL key).
  The icons disappeared from the Desktop AND from Nautilus
  I pressed Ctrl+z twice. The items were restored on my system (as proved by ls command) but the icons did not appear on my Desktop nor in a separate nautilus window).


  (going to post this, then try to xkill my session and see what
