Icon positioning/selection got screwed up.

this is one of those bugs that are difficult to explain because I could not find a way for it to happen consistently but it always happens after a while playint with the icons in the Desktop.
usually when I set up a new installation I always change the icon size in the Desktop to 48x48 then move the icons around to the positions I want then (also adding some other links to the Desktop) and then use ALT+K to align the icons to the grid (Cleanup). After a while doing this, the following will start happening:
1 - Selecting a group of icons will not work. Only one icon in a group of three (for example) is selected. based on the other symptoms I think this happens because Tracker does not think the icon is there.
2 - Moving the icons around to a place that is not even near other icons or the screen border (just to be sure it was not Tracker trying to sort up overlaps) and pressing ALT+K will move the icon to its previous position (before I dragged it). No matter what I do or to where I move the icon, when it starts happening, it will always happen.
I think this is probably related to Tracker changes made sometime ago concerning icon size and positioning.
