Summary: Gaim can open windows off-screen if screen-size changes

Initial Comment:
gaim remembers the size and position of windows,
including error messages and notification popups.  Run
an X session with a smaller screen size - e.g. if I
start my laptop without the external monitor the
desktop is 1024x768 instead of 1600x1200 - and the gaim
notification windows all come up off the bottom of the
screen.

Some window mamagers (e.g. sawfish) can move such
windows back onto the screen; gaim should do this
automatically by checking the screen size.

I don't beleive that this is a gaim bug.

It seems that it would be the WM's problem because it would
be the only thing saving window locations (apart from the
buddy list).

Well the buddy list now repositions itself if the resolution
changes and it goes off screen. This is really great under
terminal services, where it's very common to change
resolutions depending on where you're RDPing from.

the only window we place at all is the buddy list. the
placement of all other windows is entirely up to your window
manager (unless of course gtk is doing something we aren't
aware of).

Also, under Windows, when you change the screen resolution,
some popup menus no longer popup under the mouse, including
menus from the menubar.
