Package: metacity
Version: 1:2.22.0-1
Followup-For: Bug #476386


Please see also bug #453688. When in the loaded session there is
any GNOME panel that is not set to 'expanding', the window-placement
rearranging occurs.
So, you see the saved gnome-terminals come up at the right location and
as soon as applets starting to appear in the gnome-panel, it starts to
resize and grow and then the gnome-terminals get rearranged to weird
locations. Maybe it calls something of xrandr? Because running xrandr
causes the same effect.
When having the gnome-panel to expanding, it takes the whole width of
the screen and does not grow. When doing that, the gnome-terminals stay
at the same position, apparently xrandr is not called then.

I hope this helps.
