I hope nobody minds but this issue is simply too amazing to ignore. Can you imagine that this issue existed since 2008 and it still hasn't been resolved? I mean duh, duh, splutter, splutter... can you? And as if that isn't enough fast forward 7 years later and LM 17.2/3 now comes with an option to always open windows in the center of the screen but that is buggy too. What the heck is going on? And in case you're wondering, not even devilspie can fix it. I know, I tried. Holy crap! What an issue.
