Still waiting for more oks from release-team, but I looked into the patch 
in more detail. I have a few small comments:

 typedef struct {
+	int screen;
 	char *uri;
 	gboolean set;
 	GdkPoint point;
 } NautilusFileChangesQueuePosition;

Can you add screen to the end of the structure instead.

In fm-icon-view.c, rename should_show_file to should_show_file_on_screen

And it has a bug:
if (screen_num != gdk_screen_get_number (screen) &&
    screen_num < icon_view->details->num_screens) {
	return FALSE;

needs to be:
if (screen_num != gdk_screen_get_number (screen) &&
    (screen_num < icon_view->details->num_screens || 
     gdk_screen_get_number (screen) > 0) {
	return FALSE;
