This is a bug which should be fixed in the next stable version of abrt packages.
Upgrading the abrt packages to version 2.11.1-2.fc29 has been the root cause.
I have filed a bug report -> https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1665521

Here is the background information and the workaround I have provided there ...

There's a file being located in /etc/xdg/autostart, that seems to be responsible for the problem.
This is the symbolic link file : /etc/xdg/autostart/org.freedesktop.problems.applet.desktop
The file is a symlink to /usr/share/applications/org.freedesktop.problems.applet.desktop.

Delete the weird folder either by using the command line, or in the nautilus application.
Then execute sudo rm /etc/xdg/autostart/org.freedesktop.problems.applet.desktop.
Next time after restart of the system, you won't see newly created weird folders anymore.
