Desktop icons in gnome disappeared, openSUSE 11.1

I use gnome as the default desktop envt in openSUSE 11.1. I was trying
to make some changes & add a shortcut to the desktop, also trying to
restore a missing ‘My Computer’ icon using GNOME Configuration Editor
(gconf-editor), when it suddenly crashed, and all desktop icons

Any way I can restore them?
