Bug Description

If your launcher has many icons in it you can't delete icons from the top by dragging to the trash at the bottom because the launcher doesn't scroll.

To replicate:-

populate the launcher with enough icons that causes the launcher to concertina up at the bottom
grab an icon from near the top of the launcher and try to drag it to the trash at the bottom.

I confirm this here on my Samsung N310: I can't reorganise my launcher icons as I want because the launcher doesn't scroll up or down when dragging an icon to it's new position.
