This issue is new here since a few weeks.
Can you move your shortcuts as a seconds step? Hold it with a left click of the mouse and move it anywhere desired.
One cannot see what is the Plasma version and distribution in your upstream bug report.

Hehehe, I just now logged into my "kde" user account.
Clicked dragged 9 desktop shortcuts to various areas on desktop to verify original problem exists.
Yep, I can move them to right side of desktop but not I still can not get the mga5 type placements.

Yeah, saw that bug report. I am not using activities, that I know of.
While filling out this comment, reading your c9, tried to move shortcuts and none of them move now. :(
Icons are unlocked.
Not going to bother opening another bug report about that, because I have abandoned Plasma5 for Xfce. I now have that tweaked to work and perform as well as kde3 on mga3 or mga4 release. :)

Upstream bug report was created a day or so later after this bug.
Version/programs are obsolete on kde site.
I modified Source RPM: field to reflect today's test.
Created attachment 8918 [details]
mga5 and mga6 xfce placement that I want.
Created attachment 8919 [details]
current mga6 plasma placement
both attachments are bottom right corner of desktop.
Created attachment 8921 [details]
