Sorry to answer my own question but I found the answer looking back through
the posts on this list from a while ago on a different thread:

"Make sure you have gconf-editor installed, if not 'yum install
gconf-editor'.  Once installed run gconf-editor and then go the Apps
section, then look for nautilus-open-terminal.  Put a check mark in
the desktop_opens_home_dir entry.  It will then go back to its old
behaviour. "

That works fine....(I did log out and back in to make sure of changes
