This behavior is not related to 'cleanup layout' as much as it is to layout mode behavior.

What happens is that when you move a view object in layout mode, it becomes the child of the smallest view object which fully encloses it.  If you have two plots very nearly the same size, and you dump one on the other (lined up on the corner), then you have a good chance of one becoming the child of the other.  

Naturally, cleanup layout only sees the parents.

The way to fix this is, perhaps, to not let children be more than 95% the size of the parents.  Or to not dump plots exactly on top of each other in layout mode.
