Description Peter Staubach 2006-02-22 09:43:53 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20060130 Red Hat/1.0.7-1.4.3 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
When my desktop starts, all of the icons and such are aligned, except for one.
If I add a new icon, then all are aligned except for the new one.  If I delete
an icon, then the last one added becomes unaligned.

If I right-click and then select "Keep aligned" to turn it off and then do
the same thing again to turn it back on, the icons become aligned.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select "Keep aligned".
2. Log out and then log back in.
3. Check the alignment of the icons on the desktop.

Actual Results:  The last icon added is not aligned with the others.

Expected Results:  All of the icons should have been aligned with respect to each other.

Additional info:

This appears to be an off by one error when aligning the icons during startup.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

The issue still occurs on my FC-6 laptop.

I did notice that it seems to keep jpeg images aligned, but does not
keep gif images aligned at all, even when there is only one image, as
long as it is a gif image.

When I right-click, I see that "Keep Aligned" is selected.  If I
deselect "Keep Aligned" and then select it again, the icon gets
aligned with respect to the other icons on the desktop, but then the
next time that I login, the image is misaligned even though "Keep
Aligned" is still selected.

We no longer support Fedora Core 6 and I am currently trying to get my open bug
count down to a more manageable state.  I'm going to close this bug as WONTFIX.
 If this issue is still a concern for you, would you mind trying to reproduce on
a supported version of Fedora and reopening?
