Desktop icons getting displaced after every restart

The above is my current looking desktop. The above is what I see after a restart.

If I leave as it is,the other icons too gets to right side like the other two icons in the right. Also If I rename a icon in the desktop It goes to right side and If I from the thunar file manager, when I right click a file and select "Send to" and "Desktop(Create Link)" the link shortcut goes to the right

I don't why the icons like right side and I want to keep it in the left

Any ideas where should I look?
Thank you

This bug can occur if the panel is resized, followed by log out and log in.

If this bug occurs if the panel is resized, followed by log out and log in I am ready to set the panel to the default value. My panel's current size is 42, Which Value exactly should I set? or is there a command a to reset the panel completely?
Thank you

I believe the above is a great way to replicate the issue.
However, it is also not a guarantee of its occurrence by other means.

I also do not know how to fix this, other than to suggest trying the workarounds linked in the thread above.


I read the workarounds in that xfce forum but its too complicated for a linux noob like me as it is dealing with some scripts. I would have to wait till devs of xfce fix this bug.
Thank you.
