[Bug 886667] Re: boot moves desktop icons


This is not a duplicate of bug #737758. 
That bug describes how the whole desktop icon container moves horizontally due to an inconsistent handling of the unity launcher width.

This bug brings up another issue, i.e when the desktop icon container
width and/or height sizes are defined smaller than the correct sizes.
Greater sizes however will work correctly as icon locations are

The specific issue here is that the desktop icon container height is
defined smaller than the correct size which then causes vertical
compression moving any icons located below the container (workarea)

The bug is that X window properties are not properly initialized for the
Unity session but inherits old X settings from XGetWindowProperty, here
top.height=300, which indicates a panel height of 300 pixels thus
reducing the icon container height accordingly causing compression and
overlapping of desktop icons.

So, undupping this one from #737758.
