Home directory in Explorer stuck using medium icons

I like to use the detailed directory view in Windows Explorer. But something maddening happens in my home directory in Explorer under Desktop\<username>: no matter how much I try to set it to 'Details', any time I return to the folder, it reverts back to 'Medium Icons'.

If I access the folder through My Computer > C:\Users\<username>, then Windows Explorer _does_ remember the detailed view. But I never access it this way, since the other is more convenient.

Any way to fix this?
