That's already fixed.

I'll check this.

This is known. It's a bug in SawfishConfig, whichs location I haven't
been able to find. More over this issue should have been fixed by a
patch in pager 0.6 + sawfish 1.3, but it's not.

I never had that issue, but I'll check it.

You may try  to clear the window-history for Emacs (on the last
instance of it) and make sure sawfish remebers the position. Also make
sure that the window whichs position you rember is also fully in the
viewport when unmaximized, the issue should be gone then.
