    I've recently installed two applications that at the time didn't copy over in the normal organized grid fashion. Clicking View > Arrange By > Name solved this. However recently this does not hold. I will restart and the applications will be in the same out of place spot as they were before I cleaned up everything.

    Any idea as to why Finder is developing Alzheimer's?

    Some more info.

    Both are ppc apps that require rosetta to run. I haven't had any prior to these two. And I've noticed that if I move them to a new location they will retain their weird locations in the new folder when I drop them in.

    Great!

    I thought the line was Keep Arranged By in SVO, but mine doesn't say that!
