User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008041301 Fedora/3.0-0.54.beta5.fc9 Firefox/3.0b5

Description of problem:
When I use right arrow to iterate over all items in a folder, it stops at the edge of the window. It would be nice if it could move me to the next row.

The same goes with the left arrow at the left edge: it could move to the previous row.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a folder with a large amount of files in the icon view.
2. Try to iterate over it with the keyboard.
3. See how painly it is when you reach the edge.

Actual Results:
