I'm doing almost exactly the same as you.
What I do is fix the IP address of my desktop machine by getting
dnsmasq to always give it the same address. So leave your desktop
with a dynamic IP in its configuration and have something like the
following to your /etc/hosts file on the pi:-
# These have fixed IP for various reasons, so dnsmasq serves their IP
192.168.1.2 pi.zbmc.eu raspberrypi pi
192.168.1.3 esprimo.zbmc.eu zbmc.eu
My desktop machine is esprimo.
