cluttered icons with idesk.

I keep getting cluttered icons when using idesk.
This happens during startup with fluxbox,
it seems like that gray screen you get before you're logged in, is making my icons distorted...

Has anyone experienced this before...?

I found a workaround for this.
Big thanx to Matt!

make a file called .ideskfix in home
paste this:

sleep 3 (3 is the number of secound it wil take to load idesk)

put this in .xinitrc
/home/yourname/.ideskfix& # the ampersand (&)
exec your_WM
