Let me get this clear - are you saying that you have fixed

in your .sawfishrc ?

You can test by simply creating lots of viewports, like 5x5. Opening
window on each viewport (eg. an xterm with text indicating on which
viewport you did open it). Then restarting sawfish multiple times.

When currently I restart sawfish, all the windows are messed up, and
they don't even go to viewport 0,0. Each of them goes to a random
viewport. Some even go "outside" - they have coordinates out of all
viewports range. Total mess :)
