Rebecca and others,
Magnetic stuff is magical but science claims it follows the inverse
square laws (the effect decreases by the square of the distance). Move
the actual tape surface 2 units away and the problem is diminished 4
times. (How well does the frig magnet hold when you add more papers
between it and the frig?) I'd worry more about the effects of crystals
and ley lines (and security system degaussers) than metal shelving.
