that theoretically could happen as objects in shelf are also in the main
compositor canvas. but also... you can put gadgets on the desktop too.

if it was dnd into a window - a dir in there. it isn't possible but if it was a
dir on your desktop, then it would be possible. you did say you never had dirs
on your desktop, right? so taking that out of the picture... it really can't
happen. :/

if you find issues. bring them up - let me know. show me how to reproduce them.

i have to narrow down what and why and at least for the above unless it was
icons on the desktop i can't so how it's even possible, so i'm guessing it was
something else.
