Sure; when I restart sawfish everything ends up on vp 0,0, no matter
what viewport it started out on.  So I guess my problem isn't quite the
same as the one in the bug report, and perhaps not even exactly a bug.
My problem is evidently that I don't have a session manager (i.e., I
don't run Gnome or KDE), and so none of the code to save and restore
window properties actually gets run.

I don't think this is something I could fix anyway, really.  If I'm
understanding the code right the session module relies on a callback
from the C side to tell it to save state, but that callback can't be set
up unless the lisp side tells the C side how to talk to the session
manager -- which is of course impossible if there isn't one.

Have no fear, WindowManager-Hero-X is here, Kupo!

a) You need to use window-history to save atttrs
b) The following attrs are saved by default:
    ° sticky ignored never-focus type maximized frame-style cycle-skip window-list-skip

c) Just make it aware to save the VP attr by adding 'viewport' to the list, as example my value (not-yet-uploaded rev11 of my .sawfishrc):

( define-special-variable window-history-states '( sticky sticky-viewport ignored never-focus type fixed-position dimensions
   maximized frame-style cycle-skip window-list-skip viewport workspace ) )
