This is a known issue already on bugs.kde.org.
I looked into it sometime ago. The problem is with the Qt-widget which is used
as the desktop, which does the icon-move stuff on its own, and this is
currently not user friendly.
Either one reimplements a new widget to handle this better, or Trolltech does
it some day ...

Some operating systems are called 'user friendly',
Linux however is 'expert friendly'.
