Hi there!

I have three partitions for my ubuntu installation.
1: For the filesystem ( / )
2: For the homefolder ( /home )
3. Swap

Every time I do a new install of Ubuntu, I format partition nr 1, keep nr 2 as is but deletes all configurationfiles in /home (those hidden "dot-files").

Today I did just this, and even though I deleted ALL configurationfiles in /home, some old custom icons popped up in the Unitydock. It's not really a problem, but I'm just curious to why?

Sorry if it's a silly question, and thanks for helping.
