    Angry WTH?! Desktop erasures, changed dock and icons, confusion
    Hey, I'm running a G4 on Tiger, and Safari was acting a little strange. I restarted it, and when I returned, it was really messed up. I restarted again; before I'd had an issue where the screen size would change and a restart would fix it. But now it's the same. The worst was when I opened up iTunes and saw that it was empty. I checked my desktop and sure enough the folder "Stuff" which I kept everything in was gone. Nothing in the trash. All gone.

    I took a screenshot the other day:

    And here's what it is now:

    Things to note:
    Smaller HD icon
    Missing "Stuff folder"
    Dock rearranged, programs missing from dock (I checked, I still have them)

    Any ideas? I'm going to restart again and see.

    Did you rename your Home folder?
