Yes, this works.  But if you look at the "Properties" of the icon, you
will see that the original Home link is an application, not an URL.
Don't really know what difference it might make, but I was just trying
make sure I didn't give misinformation.  Application versus URL links
have more things that can be customized.  Also, looking at mine, it
didn't come from /etc/skel, on my Debian system, so I don't know exactly
where the darn things comes from.
