Thank you for your quick response RSH. You have to understand that I am relatively new at all this, so forgive me if I goof up here and there.
I tested the script with your suggestions, but unsuccesfully I'm afraid.

I called your script /usr/local/bin/autodesktop-restore.

In xwin, I called it like this:

$ /usr/local/bin/autodesktop-restore

I did this right before X is being started (#finally, start X..)
It does run. At least, I am not getting any messages suggesting otherwise. However, the icons keep appearing, and the desktop-restore script does not run with the line 34:

[ "$1" == "-r" ] && restore && restartwm

changed to:

[ "$1" == "-r" ] && restore #&& restartwm

So I had change that back to get my normal desktop back again. With desktop-restore back to its old self, the icons also keep appearing at reboot btw.

It's entirely possible that I have made some silly mistake along the way. Great to have your input though!

Code:
$ /usr/local/bin/autodesktop-restore

Is this the line as you have inserted it?

Why there is the $ in front of the line?

If I'm testing this with: $ nicoedit, nicoedit will NOT run!

By the way: there must be a line where it says 'created with pupmode=5' or similar to this. I would recommend to insert /usr/local/bin/autodesktop-restore before that line or somewhere when delayedrun is called.

Just to make sure not to copy/restore it too early inside of the xwin script.

RSH, I did as you suggested. Could not find any of the mentioned entries in my xwin, so I just placed /usr/local/bin/autodesktop-restore on the same spot I placed it before, and it works like a charm!

You have made me a very happy man, and I want to thank you very very much.

This is wonderful!

An indication of the release month and year should always be found in the ISO filename

I myself spent tens of hours trying randomly recommended Puppies in which the 3G modem was nor recognized
