Not quite -- or perhaps there is something I do not understand. It seems
that as soon as I move any shelf item manually, it gets "manual
positioning" and no longer adapts to the screen dimension changes. So
indeed your proposed solution works as long as I don't move any items
manually -- which I do want to do, as I want to reorder items in my

I'd much rather have shelves that behave dynamically -- e.g. if I choose
the lower right corner for a shelf, that shelf should try to dynamically
fit there as I resize or rotate the screen, preserving the order of
items. There should be some sort of "gravity" for the items, so that
they float towards the lower right corner if that is the shelf
configuration I had chosen.

I can confirm that -- in my case blowing away the entire ~/.e directory
seemed to have been the solution.

Confirmed fixed, thanks!

Indeed it does. Thanks again for the impressive bugfixing spree!
