I don't think I've ever got the position part to work. I tried again 
now, with twm as well as sawfish, gnome-terminal --geometry 80x44+0+0. 
The size is correct, the position is ignored. This is with 
gnome-terminal from gnome-core-

If I'm doing something stupid, maybe somebody could point it out and 
I'll go and stand in the corner.
