    2 > Users can actually make icons overlap themselves. So even while Tracker can figure out if a mounted volume overlaps another icon, it can't be sure this is how the user actually configured it. In strict spatial mode, Tracker should never override user configured placement. I believe this should be fixed differently: Introduce an icon placement mode where the user can arrange icons on a grid only and never so that they overlap. If this mode is preferred by everyone, the current mode could then be competely replaced by it.

     6The Tracker code is to big and convaluted for me to learn quickly enough to be able to figure out what is causing this.
