The reason for this problem are some b0rken apps which don't allow
relative paths for configuration. :( There's a fix inside grml2hd
for this problem but it does not match any setup like in your case.

So to fix the issue just run:

  sed -i "s#/home/grml#/home/$USER#g" /home/$USER/.gkrellm2/user-config
  sed -i "s#/home/grml#/home/$USER#g" /home/$USER/.gkrellm2/theme_config
  sed -i "s#/home/grml#/home/$USER#g" /home/$USER/.idesktop/*.lnk

with $USER set to your username of course. This should fix the issue
with idesktop (and gkrellm2 as well). Run

  grep -r '/home/grml' .*

to locate any further possible problems but there shouldn't be any
further noticeable ones.
