Implement a sort of type-ahead filtering for the Desktop

In the Tracker's settings I have selected "Enable type-ahead filtering"; this option works as expected in any open folder. However, regardless of the fact that this option is checked or not, on the Desktop, typing a letter to quickly find the corresponding icon, this doesn't work as happen on the Desktop of other operating systems.
Let's see the example showed in the attached video: for test, I created some files which start with the "T" letter; if I click the "T" letter on my keyboard, firstly will be selected the icon of the Trash, then the icon which starts with the "L" letter; then, no other action will occur: none of other files which starts with "T" will be selected. Then, to start again this "search", I have to select any icon on the Desktop: otherwise, this "search" will not work again.
Well, I know that the type-ahead filtering feature of the Tracker works with a different concept (it will only shows the corresponding results in the window), but would be nice, at least to fix/implement something on functional also on the Desktop.
