Steps to reproduce:

I have more than 4 screens full of installed applications.
I want to organize them and move some recently installed apps from the end to the middle of the list, let's say to the second screen from the fourth screen. I drag and drop desired application icons to the launch-bar on the bottom (up to six is allowed to host there, so for me it means 2)
I go to the desired 2nd screen and start moving them to the desired position.
First move always passes, other icons make space and it works as expected (although its very slow).

Actual results:

 But second (and if not second then third attempt) of doing it with another application (icon) ends in the middle, icon is rendered during the move process, out of grid and refuses any further interaction, there is black space in the launch-bar at the bottom. Even going to the home changes nothing, it is still like this / broken, icon hanging around, black space at the bottom. It is OK only after restart of the device.

Expected results:

Application icon should take its place like did it predecessor and list of icons/apps should shift.

Or is there a better way how to organize them? (I miss more detailed manual a bit)
I had the same bug.

You can also drag the application icon to the edge of the screen for a second and switch it to another virtual desktop this way. It's a bit sluggish but it works.
Mass update: Resolve wontfix all issues with legacy homescreens.

As of 2.6 we have a new homescreen and having these issues open is confusing. All issues will block bug 1231115 so we can use that to re-visit any of these if needed.
