How do I rename the Windows Desktop for Citrix-published apps?

We are publishing apps using XenApp 4.5 and use a GPO to hide C:drive, recycle bin and the like from the 'Open' or 'Save as' dialog boxes. Works great. The problem lies with the Desktop...

We are not using roaming profiles (and will not) and therefore cannot provide the Citrix users with their standard desktop they usually see on their computer. We do, however, redirect the Desktop folder for users logging into Citrix to a network share so that, at least, we have one desktop that's shared over all the Citrix servers instead of having a separate desktop on every Citrix server. It's not the most elegant solution but it works. Our users will accustom to having 2 desktops but we want to avoid confusion and therefore rename the Desktop within the dialog box of the published app to something like Citrix_Desktop.

How are we going to accomplish that? Is there a smart GPO setting we are overlooking? Is there some hideous registry key we could adjust?
