It depends on user settings in ui-properties, and on the window manager.
I don't think it does the centering by default.

(It doesn't actually do centering anyway, because there's no way to know
how big the dialog is before it's on the screen - it just sort of assumes
the dialog is around 1/2 the size of the main window and "centers" based
on that.)

There's room for improvement here, but it's more a sucky feature than a
bug I think.

Maybe you add something after you've already shown the main window? (This
is probably a Gtk bug anyway, but as a workaround...)
