[Bug 1499280] [NEW] Desktop icons are put outside visible area on multi-display session


Public bug reported:

I cannot see all the icons on my Desktop.

I have a dual monitor setup where the upper left corner of the left
monitor is physically lower than the upper left corner of the right
monitor.  Therefore I have configured the monitor layout accordingly
(hopefully see attached screenshot).

To my understanding this is implemented by having a single very large
rectangular display area where each monitor displays its own snippet,
where the upper left corner of this rectangle is therefore not shown.
It appears however that the automatic placement of icons on the desktop
calculates from the invisible corner of the whole display area, and does
not take in consideration that the monitor will not show this.

The icons are there, I can use Ctrl-A to mark all and move them with the
mouse by grabbing one of the icons which are actually visible.  I just
cannot see them.

Please advise.
