I am using 2 monitors, one with 1280x1024 and the other with 1024x768.  
When I start the X server using the -multiwindow option then start an 
app (such as xterm) the application always opens in the top corner of 
the smaller monitor at a point where the top of the window is off the 
screen.  I can't get to the title bar to move the window so in order to 
see everything I have to tile or cascade the windows which is a pain.  
Is there some way to set the default location on the screen the windows 

Thanks for the help.
