Certain tips I got from 'Mr. Google' do not seem to work either.
I managed to get it to work now with this (after installing CCSM):

System > Preferences > CompizConfig-Settings-Manager > Window Management > Place Windows > Placement Mode > Centered.

At least now any new window will open up in center (as it does in 9.04), and not in a top-left corner. The placement mode 'smart' doesn't look smart at all to me.
