Same issue. Each time I try to place winamp in the DesktopCorral area it just pushes winamp out of the area?

v1.03.01
Vista 64bit SP1

--------------

Issue solved - placed winamp settings to always on top

Although Windows seems a bit inconsistent about this -- in general it tends to shove desktop shortcuts out of the way of the docked corals unfortunately, so the program is more useful for reserving space for other programs rather than shortcuts.

On the other hands I will point out that if you want to have a space for "shortcuts" docked to one side of your screen, what you might want instead of Desktop Coral is a docked launch bar thing, like Windows Built in Quick Launch, or True Launch Bar, or my very own Launchbar Commander.
