On a SuSE box with KDE 3.1 (I have Mandrake 9.2 at home) I experience the
same problem. Such a problem only occurs if I have too many items placed in
Desktop /but/ they also must get placed passively by processes such as a
download, as opposed to me dragging something to Desktop.
To be brief, items naturally get placed vertically (in a column) and they
seem to be allowed a placement underneath the viewable desktop, in which
case I can scroll down by drawing a rectanglar selection with the mouse. I
don't think a second column ever gets used unless I intervene.
I do not have virtual desktops (dual-head is enough) and I have randomally
chosen wallpapers that are _scaled_, hence the suggestion from Alex would
not do any magic, at least not in my particular case.
