Summary: Gaim can open windows off-screen if screen-size changes
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
Some window mamagers (e.g. sawfish) can move such
windows back onto the screen; gaim should do this
automatically by checking the screen size.
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.
