10.5: Get the old desktop icon position behavior back Desktop
As mentioned in this hint, server icons will appear at the same position you left them when they were mounted the last time. For me, this is more of a bug than a feature, so I added the following command to a login script to get the good old behaviour back:
defaults delete com.apple.finder FXDesktopVolumePositions
This deletes the server icon positions every time you log in to your account, so the icons will appear in the good old order: At the next empty place from top right. Use at your own risk.
