Bug Description

When not in auto-hide mode, icons are shifted out of the way of the dock. This does not happen when the dock is in auto-hide mode meaning that when there is no window to cause it to hide, the icons at the edge of the desktop are obscured. These icons are commonly Home, Trash and various volumes.

Either the icons should be autplaced out of the way of the dock, or the dock should be able to be made to auto-hide always (my preferred solution) as well as only when a window would be obstructed.
