Align on grid not working

On my PowerBook 17", the align on grid is not working for the 150 pixels zone at the bottom of the screen.
I'm able to drag & drop icons 1 pixel at a time.

I was also not able to reproduce the alignment that I can get with the Finder. It seems that the align on grid option in PathFinder is different from the Finder.
If PathFinder was able to "import" this setting from the Finder I'd be happy.

Best regards,

    Yes, Path Finder behaviour in this regard differs a bit from Finder.

    In Finder, if you choose to snap desktop icons to grid, you can't put them within those 150 pixels zone at the bottom of the screen. You can put icons in the zone only if Snap to Grid is OFF.

    In Path Finder, you can put icons in that zone even with Snap to grid enabled, but they don't really snap to grid while being in that zone.

    We'll fix it.
