Strange, fortunately never had that with TkDesk 1.2 on potato. Well
you should be able to force TkDesk to use a certain configuration.
man tkdesk says: 

       -configdir dir
              By  default  TkDesk  reads its configuration either
              from  the  files   contained   in   the   directory
              "~/.tkdesk"  (see  section  FILES  below), or if it
              does not exist,  from  TkDesk's  library  directory
              (usually  "/usr/local/lib/TkDesk").   This  options
              lets  TkDesk  load  its  configuration  files  from
              directory dir.

Also notice:

              Let  TkDesk read its configuration from its library
              directory.  This means that TkDesk will start using
              the default configuration.
