You might want to use gdk_window_get_position to know the position of the
parent when the child appears (as well as gdk_window_get_size).
You should then connect one of the signals of the parent (state_changed may
be a good choice but I am not sure) so that you can reposition the child
windows with the help of gtk_window_reposition.
