Are you sure you haven't done something else to the system? It appears
the system creates most directories under the homedir with more
restrictive permissions. For example, I just created two new
users (on OS X 10.0.4), one with admin and one without; in both cases,
/Users/newuser/Desktop was 700, as well as almost all other directories
created for a new user. OS X creates eight directories for a new
user: Desktop, Documents, Library, Movies, Music, and Pictures, which are
all mode 700, and two mode 755 directories: Public, and Sites.

Permissions of /Users/yourname/Desktop which show your desktop is
xrwxrwxrwx, allowing every user to read/write on your own Desktop folder.
Fix: chmod 755 or chmod 750 /Users/yourname/Desktop
Apple have been warned long ago and as of 10.0.4 it is stil not fixed.
