  unity desktop icons disappear with multiple monitors

Status in Unity:
Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have two monitors, using Unity. 1 is 1366x768 (left).  It is my
  primary. 2 is 1920x1080. Also, the 1366x768 monitor is linked at the
  top to the right monitor.

  I have about 20 desktop icons, including various folders, images,
  tar's, shortcuts etc.

  The problem is:
  The icons seem to arrange lower than the 1366x768 display, causing icons to be inaccessible, or invisible.

  My preferred solution is to adjust the logic to make the icons visible
  and arrange in visible space.

  I believe the autoarrange logic could be using the total height of the
  display, discounting the potential "invisible space" in the bottom
  left of the total resolution.
