Description of problem:
If I right click on the desktop and select "Create Folder" it should place the new folder in roughly the same position as where I clicked. I shouldn't have to search the desktop for it (especially when I have multiple spanning monitors and the new folder icon is placed under the full screen window on another monitor entirely.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. select an open area of the desktop
2. right click for contextual menu
3. select "create folder"
Actual Results: Icon placement is arbitrary, sometimes far from where you clicked
Expected Results: Icon should be created roughly where you clicked
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
As of FC3 / latest - gnome-desktop-2.8.0-3 this is still annoying and would be
great if fixed.
