	So, turning off StubbornIconPlacement would assist in solving
this? Most of my windows are on the large side, but there's enough
room where I defined the IconBox to be on all but a couple desktops.

	Permissions in respect to which? All the aforementioned
pixmaps look okay... Is there something else that needs looking at?

	I have re-installed AS just as a "shot in the dark", earlier
on, and it doesn't appear to have affected this at all. I know it
worked at one time, but I can't remember how far back. I haven't used
this function in quite a while, and therefore can't see myself doing
anything obvious to hamper its' ability.

	I know it is... Let's just say I'm (almost) unrealistically
anxious to have the final product. :-)
