It's a window manager problem, you should tweak the configuration of
your window manager (that in Gnome is defaulted to Metacity). 

For example with Sawfish I have to launch the window manager
configurator, select the "Placement" tab and choose the policy for
placing the new opened windows ("Centered" in this case).
