Windows in question are those that need to use different gravity.
You can't really force all GTK clients to use Static gravity, and at
the same time, most of them will want to save their position for later use.

Try :

rxvt -g -100-100

and then change font size in it:
Shift+Gray+, Shift+Gray-

left bottom corner should stay put.
