Quick fix for list view opening below files Desktop
A friend and myself have run into this one at different times...

if you have a window in list view, with a large number of items, scroll down (page down, whatever) to near the bottom, close the window, the next time you open it, it remebers where you were, which is good. now if you trash or move most of these files, close the window, then open it again (sometimes or all the time), it opens with no files visible, and you have to scroll up/page up to see the files

I've found a fix to get it sorted out again...change how it's sorted (instead of by name, change it to by date) after you have scrolled up to where you want it to open (for example, at the top of the list), now close the window. next time you open it, it should open where you last set it to.

I've seen this bug happen in both my downloads folder, and my mp3 folder, in both MacOS X 10.0.3 and 10.0.4. If this isn't clear, just ask me to try and re-explain it again =)
