I created a plugin that acts as a workaround to this GTK bug.
It is posted in the Plugins Tracker:

Just mentioning that I have the same issue.  With my left
monitor blow my right monitor, the new conversation window
is above the window area and unaccessable.  I see this is
assigned, so I am looking forward to a resolution.  Thanks
for a great product.

I have the same issue but my dual-monitors are not
configured at different heights.  My #1 monitor is the
laptop monitor and the #2 monitor sits to the left.  That
means my #2 monitor on the left has the (0,0) position for
my desktop.  And that's where my IM windows appear.  I would
like the IM windows to appear in the center of #1.  It would
be nice if GAIM would remember the last position of the last
IM window that I closed (typically, all my IMs will be in
relatively the same position).  This is the same behavior as
MS Internet Explorer.

I am using GAIM 1.1.0 on WindowsXP.

I am having the same problem but have figured out the
cause. It appears that new IM windows will appear in the top-
leftmost corner of your display. If you have two monitors,
this should be at (0,0). However, if you set to two monitors
to not be parallel left-to-right (i.e. the right monitor is
configured to be higher than the left monitor) new IM
windows use the lowest X and Y values from BOTH monitors.

For example, say my left screen is at (0,0) and the right
screen is at (1024,-168). This was done because the left
screen is a laptop and the right screen is a monitor that sits
higher.

New IM windows in the configuration appear at (0,-168)
which is off the top of the left screen.

Suggestions: 1. Allow window positions for new IM windows
to be set/saved or 2. force new windows to (0,0) instead of
self-discovering the top-left corner.
