Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE Distribution
Version: Leap 15.1
Hardware: x86-64

Build Identifier:

I position the icons for programs and files on my desktop. When I log out and
in again (or after a reboot) the icons lost their position and are mixed
somehow over the desktop, so that I have to arrange them again.

It even places one icon below the screen size, so that the desktop gets a
scroll line on the right.

Some icons are moved, others stay where they have been.

There is no difference whether I lock the symbols or not, except that after the
reboot with the moved icons I cannot move them when locked, of course - but the
system can, obviously :-(

Desktop Settings (here in German, translated by me...):
Layout: folder view
Background-Type: Image
Positioning: scaled
Place: show desktop folder
Symbols in lines, left
do not sort
size: middle (slider on position 4 of 6)
2 Text lines

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Place icons for applications and files all over the desktop
2. reboot
Actual Results:
Many icons are moved to other positions on the desktop, even outside of the
screen size, so that the desktop background gets a scroll-line.

Expected Results:
Icons stay where I have put them.

I had the same problem in the beginning of OS 42.3, but with time it
