Sounds like that must have been the issue
I wonder if the home screen icon overflow limit is set too high because of BlinkFeed? Maybe Sense was not designed to exclude the open screen area underneath the forced BlinkFeed widget. At least it is smart enough not to blindly hide icons underneath BlinkFeed - maybe it just forces them onto the adjacent home screen even if it is full?
