Windows 7: extended desktop scrolls on some edges only after ShowDesktop

extended desktop scrolls on some edges only after ShowDesktop

I'm a bit surprised that I did not find any other reports on this particular issue, but then again it's hard to search for because there are SO many other issues related to "extended desktop", and "show desktop".

My issue:
-I use the Show Desktop feature. (win+d, or taskbar right edge button, or taskbar right-click ->"Show the desktop")
-then I move the mouse to one of these edges(see screen setup for reference):
screen2-bottom, screen1-top, screen2-left(the top portion that does not border on screen1)
-WHOA! the whole desktop scrolls! and the background gets distorted.
-move the mouse to the opposite edge and it scrolls back, but remains distorted.
-open any window and everything snaps back to place.

My screen setup:

What I'd like to know:
1. have anyone else seen this/ is anyone else able to reproduce this?
2. is there some way to fix it? cause it is quite annoying.

400+ views, 6+ months, and still no response
Are there really no Windows 7-geeks in here willing to accept these challenges?
Not even number 1?
