User-Agent: Mozilla/4.72 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.18-dsp1 i686)

Description of problem:
When I log out of Gnome and choose "Save current setup", the gnome-terminal
windows arrangements I had before aren't properly restored on the next login. 
For example, if I previously had some windows placed on several of the desktops,
they all get restored on desktop 1 with the correct sizes but incorrect

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into Gnome.
2. Open several gnome-terminal windows on several desktops, and drag them to the
desired positions and sizes.
3. Log out of Gnome, and check the "Save current setup" option.
4. Log back into Gnome.

Actual Results:  All gnome-terminal windows come back up with the correct sizes,
but they are strewn all over desktop 1, regardless of which desktop they
previously were on and what position they had on their original desktop.

Expected Results:  The gnome-terminal windows should have been restored to
exactly the same desktop and position they originally were in.

This is partly gnome-terminal's fault and partly Sawfish's fault. It's a lot of
engineering to fix; I've done most of the work already, but only 
for GNOME 2. It should be fixed when we move to GNOME 2. The last 
GNOME 1.x drop date is already passed, so closing the bug; it's too late to 
fix for 1.x.
