I changed $HOME/.config/user-dirs.dirs so that XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/Desktop/foobar" and everything seems to behave fine, so I can't replicate your experience, which makes it hard to fix. Could you start with a fresh system (maybe a virtual machine) and come up with some clear steps?

Barring that, you might bark up the tree of libqt5xdg3 but there's nothing about it, from what I can tell, that deals with the Desktop directory different than any others.
