Description of problem:
It would be nice if sawfish 'remembered' the last size of a window and where the
window was positioned on the desktop.  Maybe there could be options in the
window's pulldown menu like in previous versions.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
This is an enhancement request.

We are providing sawfish "as-is" so closing all feature requests for it.

I would forward this bug to gnome.org for you, but I'm assuming the feature was
deliberately removed. You might want to search bugzilla.gnome.org or Sawfish
mailing list for previous discussion.

Comment 2 berto 2002-10-02 22:01:51 UTC
Call me crazy, but today I learned that I'm not using sawfish!  It's been
metacity all along.  Is there a way for metacity to remember the previous
position of a window?

See http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=81802

Also there's a fair bit of discussion in wm-spec-list@gnome.org archives.

Short answer though is that it can't be implemented reliably without 
some new conventions in the WM spec. In any case, 81802 on gnome.org tracks this
