Desktop folder at wrong location

When running office in crossover the crossover desktop folder and my KDE desktop folder are not the same.

The "My Documents" and all other "My.."- folder are linked to my Linux home.

I did the same with the crossover desktop folder, and things seem to work.

Why isn't this the default? Will I get into other problems with this configuration?

The "My ..." folders are suppose to point to directories inside the bottle containing the Windows program. If you go to the desktop in the Windows app you should see a directory link to take you outside the bottle to your Linux desktop (or change the drive letter to Z: will give you /).
