desktop/kicker + icon placement

Hi all,

I'm looking how we can solve the problems with icons not keeping the desired 
position on the desktop (> 500 votes)

It seems to me that the main problem is that the workArea size is changing 
when kicker hides/unhides.

Does anything speak against simply not resizing the workarea in this cases ?

(that is: only resize it when the _position_ of kicker changes, but not when 
it hides/unhides)

I'm convinced, that a user does not want the icons to jump around when the 
workarea temporarily gets larger because of a hidden kicker (as it will 
reappear sooner or later).

Best regards/Schöne Grüße
