It would seem nautilus has somehow been turned off in the session. Not that I see how that would happen, but session management in GNOME2 is pretty complex, so something just might have gone wrong.
Try starting nautilus manually and see what happens. You can do this easily by selecting Home Folder from the apps menu. If the desktop icons still don't show up, check the preferences in nautilus so that they include that nautilus should draw the desktop.
