I currently have sawfish set to 'best-fit' placement, but it keeps sending
new windows to the top right-hand corner, regardless of whether or not
there's already a window there. :-(
It seemed to be more of a case of one window being 'invisible' as far as the
placement algorithm went. When I closed that one (gnome-terminal) window, it
worked fine with new gnome-terminal windows.
Sorry, don't know how to reproduce it.
Hmm, will forward to John Harper and see if he has thoughts.
Okay, here's how to reproduce it.
Start a gnome-terminal. It appears at the top right hand corner. (I'm using
best-fit placement and _not_ remembering window attributes.)
Move it slightly, dropping it back at the top right hand corner. Start another
gnome-terminal. The new window now covers the old one.
The ChangeLog for 0.38 sounds promising:
- Corrected off-by-one error in `smart' placement modes
Haven't tried it though.
Sounds semi-similar to my window placement problem in bug #21732
Also sounds similar to bug #15438

Closing on RH level.
