Our size allocation issues

We have some very serious issues with our size allocation for 
NautilusViews. For some reason they get allocated at 45x60 and then after 
a while the size allocation machinery turns up and makes them the real 
size. This gives a variety of problems:

* unneccessary of flashing on startup, new window, and switching view
* performance problems, with double redraws and double size allocation

And, like i discovered today:
* can break other stuff

I found the cause of the bug where desktop icons were placed in the top 
left corner on startup. It was limiting the icon positioning to the 
allocation of the desktop NautilusIconContainer, but sometimes at startup 
when positioning icons the allocation was still 45x60, so everything ended 
up in a pile.

We really have to try to fix this for real. I think the problem is 
caused by the fact that there is a GktSlot/GktPlug between the toplevel 
and the NautilusView placed there by Bonobo, and it makes size allocation 
issues very complicated. I did some work a while ago to fix this, but I 
never really managed to find out the root cause.

Michael, you know bonobo best, any chance you can take a look at this?
