Subject: metacity: second login: windows all on the top left
Date: Mon, 14 Jan 2008 19:47:06 +0100
Package: metacity
Version: 1:2.20.1-1
Severity: normal

When I log in, I have some Gnome terminal emulators auto started, nicely
put on the screen. This always works fine. However, when someone else
had logged in before (and had a fine session, and logged out again), and
then I log in, all those windows are put on the top left of the desktop,
on top of each other.

Very strange problem, and very annoying.
