Description John Ellson 2009-06-13 10:14:59 EDT
Description of problem:
Using "Open in Terminal" from the desktop menu results in a new gnome terminal appearing first in the desired window location, but then immediately moved to a lest desirable location, as if to avoid the first one.   I believe this behaviour is recent, perhaps rawhide only.

Opening gnome-terminal from a gnome-panel icon results in normal placement behavior.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. "Open in Terminal" from desktop menu
Actual results:
gnome-terminal is opened in a reasonable place, but then immediately moved again.

Expected results:
First time placement of window on desktop
