Dunno about the other problems but those two behaviors are normal. ~/Desktop is a standardized location so both desktop environments will see a .desktop file dropped there. The monitor config is different though. mate-display-properties and Gnome's tool will store information in their own place and in their own way. You will have to configure it in both. And good luck getting one of them to actually save the default the login box will use because then you get into a combinational explosion where each possible display manager might use parts of any desktop environment to get that information from, but being Fedora will probably want to be configured by Gnome 3 unless you have swapped out the default login.
