I agree.  It's even more obvious with a different desktop background that's
actually a picture.  It looks like I've got the background image properly
scaled with a smaller portion of the image (I'm not entirely sure if it's the
whole image or not) being overprinted on it.

I haven't actually tried to place an icon on there.  I do know that I can place
an application window anywhere on the desktop with no problem (that I've
noticed so far).  I'll try putting an icon there when I'm next at that office
and see what happens.
