I think I had this same behavior. I specified a winlist geometry of
something like -0-XXX.  Everytime I changed desks (at least, there may 
have been other triggers) the winlist (which was also verticle) would
shift by -1-1 pixels.  Eventually, it would end up with part of it off 
the screen.  The only solution was to stop the winlist and restart it.

I don't remember when this was fixed, but it was fixed.  I used
winlist for some time in the verticle mode without any problems.  I
eventually wanted the desk space back, so removed it.  As I said, I
don't remember which version of AS fixed this.  My suggestions would
be to go to the latest (either 1.6.0, which is stable with some small
bug fix patches; or 1.7.0, which has some new features in test/devel
mode.)  If this doesn't fix your problem, then let us know.  Good luck.
