Both of them doing exactly the same thing all of us are experiencing.
I wonder this: Do all of us have multiple monitors with multiple resolutions? Perhaps a vertical resolution setting on one monitor is somehow influencing the other monitor, but only for icon placement? Follow me here, my secondary monitor is 1680x1050, but my primary monitor is 1024x768. Is it possible that the boundaries for the icons on my primary monitor is vertically set at 1680 (or something like that)? Just a shot in the dark, but something worth playing with. THis is obviously a bug of some sort.
My video card is an ATI 4850, so it's evidently not card specific, either.
yeah, i didnt think that anything other than ultramon might've been influencing, nothing else made sense. and my resolutions are 1440x900 (primary), 1280x1024 (secondary). i am 100%
sure what the error is, but that doesnt mean i have a damn clue how to fix it. the icon space is starting on the primary monitor by taking the bottom as the position of the secondary monitor. if you have a 0 vertical offset with equal resolutions, you should not see an issue. I for instance have my 2ndary set at 560 pix "above" my primary, which is the point where my icon space starts on my primary. if i set it to zero, it brings the icons back down.
whether it is also taking the vertical resolution of the icon space from the secondary, i cannot confirm, because my vertical res on main monitor is smaller.
