The icon you are dragging is coming from another window.

The whole idea is if you open a Konq or other window, and drag an image to the 
desktop, if you have icons showing then it prompts you if you want to set it 
as your background. If you don't have icons showing it does nothing.

Why does this need to be the case? When I turn off icons KDesktop is still 
running, why not have the window still there to accept drops?
