I usually experience this behavior when I try to manually arrange 
desktop icons.  It seems they don't stay where I wanted to put them.  
It's been that way from when I first started using Lubuntu, and I just 
don't try to arrange my desktop icons anymore.

I just now tried re-arranging my desktop icons, and it seems much 
better-behaved than it used to be.  I was actually able to re-arrange 
them, and they stayed where I put them (well, approximately where I put 
them), and in some cases they stayed selected, even when I clicked 
elsewhere on the desktop.

So the situation is much better now than back when I gave up on using 
the functionality.  Of course, I don't know if they'll stay where I put 
them the next time I reboot.
