I use only one desktop, so I meant that after Restart all winodws appear at
the top-left quadrant (viewport). Today I used my configuration files with
an older AfterStep (1.8.1), and here all windows remain their posiions after
Restart. So I think that sometimes must have changed between thoses two
versions of AfterStep (1.8.1 and 1.8.10).
