Seems like a bug in librsvg, that have already been fixed in newer
versions of librsvg: It is discussed here:

You can move and resize the window using <Alt> + left or middle mouse
button. The vesion in svn will remember the new position when restarting

I am working on a configure dialog.

I'll look into that, I dont think the method I am using to stick the
wondow to the desktop is perfect. I experience annoyances my selves as

programs running, breaking desktop switching.

Yes, it shoud probably distinguish between 'pause' and 'not playing'.
