    Rogue desktop icons...
    Is there any reason for desktop icons/items to go wandering? When I'm not looking they'll go and sit somewhere else... very annoying.

    They're snapped to grid, but now and then (maybe every few months) they move from any position on the desktop to the top right and cascade down in columns. It doesn't happen after cron scripts are run, or after a Finder restart, however. Could this be the result of a Finder pref corruption?

    Ok, so it's not a corruption of Finder. Cheers gents.
