Problem: In certain configurations, when connecting and disconnecting an external monitor, Path Finder desktop icon positions are reset.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Connect external monitor
2. Go to Displays > Arrangement in System Preferences
3. Change arrangement so that:

(1). Menu bar is on external monitor
(2). External monitor is directly above internal display (so that moving the cursor down from the external display causes it to appear at the top of the internal display)

.4. Disconnect external monitor

--> Desktop icon positions should be reset

(5. Moving desktop icons, and then reconnecting the external monitor using the same display arrangement configuration, will again reset icon positions)
