Screenshot of ICONS sticking and overlapping

When trying to customize ICON layout on the Unagi device, moving many ICONs rapidly to various positions, on the homescreen and in the dock, result in some ICONs sticking in places that over lap other ICONs or in a state where they can be moved around freely and do not function as intended. 

Repro Steps:
1) Updated to Unagi Build ID: 20130325070203
2) Unlock phone
3) Long press an ICON and move it to another location
4) Long press same ICON and move it again to a different location
5) Repeat steps 3 and 4 with at least 4 or more different ICONs
6) Long press all but two ICONs in the phone dock and move them out of the dock
7) With two ICONS remaining in the dock, return 3 or more to the dock dropping     them in various places and on top of other icons in the dock
8) Repeat steps 7 and 8 at least 2 or more times.
ICONs stick and over lap in various places on the Unagi device, these ICONs will duplicate leaving the original in the stuck position and the duplicate where it would have been dropped if the issue hadn't happened. Sometimes duplicates are relocatable and will move from page to page with the users interaction, this leaves the possibility of ICON being anywhere on the home screen including "Everything Me" and the homepage where the digital time is displayed.  

ICONs will respond per the use case and set into the location where dropped by the user.

Restarting the phone will erase all duplicated and stuck ICONs on the device.

Patch v1

The problem was only reproducible in the dock. With the 7 and 8 steps is enough to reproduce the bug. For some reason, inserting a node re-triggers the blob URI to be validated and we revoked the url before insertBefore operation. Now, the revoked URL is the previous one and not the current. The fix is very simple

The bug is reproducible on master and v1-train

I've put some questions on github.

This seems to be simple but I never like adding some code to work around something we don't understand, so I'd really want that understand why and where the blob URI is revalidated.

Based upon the STR being particularly complicated, marking as blocking-b2g:-, but approving for v1.1 given the low risk evaluation.

Alex, the STR is actually not so complicated, merely moving icons out of the dock is enough to trigger the bug.
