As of (cough) recently (maybe 10.1 or 10.1.2 ?) the finder "pushes" 
desktop icons over to the left if you have the dock on the right. At 
least, it does for me. There, they do not interfere with the dock 
anymore, but if you have wide windows open, they can get obscured. 

Maybe if Apple makes a similar mod for a LHS dock, that is, that new 
windows get opened slightly to the right of the dock, that might OK. 

In the meantime, the solution is probably to kick your icons off the 
desktop ;-|
