Is Time Machine The Devil?

I have a 2008 iMac running Snow Leopard. I decided it was about time to start keeping Time Macjine Backups as this is where I know do most of my graphics work. Now I also must add that since the machine was starting to get slow and filled up, I moved my music to a backup drive and all of my Home Folder to another drive.
Ever since I started using Time Machine on a regular basis, my iMac reverts back to the original setup at restart about once per month. It has the original Snow Leopard desktop and cannot locate my Home Folder. Even when running the terminal commands it goes back to the original location when I first installed Snow Leopard. I re-establish links to all of the folders but when I restart it goes back to the default.
Inevitably and randomly about once per month after a Time Machine backup, my computer gets slow and I restart it. When restarted , it is back to bare, out of the box Snow Leopard.
It seems that ot there several others out there on various forums with the same issue.
Is there a way around this or have I been tricked by the devil?

Sounds like you've been inadvertently renaming your home folder.

This manifests itself as seemingly having a clean account when you reboot your machine.Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
