This is not the perfect solution, but it actually  solves two problems. 
This may not be perfect for you because you might like one aspect but not 
the other.

Change the line in /etc/xdg/user-dirs.conf from 
enabled=True
to
enabled=False

Then I deleted the Videos, Pictures, Music, Documents, Public, etc, which 
I do not want in the first place.
