As I said to Jeremy Hankins response, the problem doesn't show with
gnome 2.28 under openSUSE 11.2, whereas in openSUSE 11.1 with an older
gnome the problem arises.

I've now solved this problem. It was a configuration problem. To your
information: I use 'first fit' as the placing method. (BTW: 'best fit'
doesn't show this behavior.)

I suppose that history is the german 'Chronik' within window rules.
Now I've set there (freely translated from german) 'remember window
sizes automatically'. This solves the problem. So it was my fault.

To my excuse: There are so many possibilities to tweak, that's
sometimes very difficult to understand what's going on. On the other
side it's the great strength of sawfish to configure nearly
everything. In the past the Gnome Team stopped supporting sawfish
because there were too many configure options. And they cut down also
their own system. So nowadays I use the gnome panel and all the rest is
done with sawfish. And that's great!
