I just cheked, my old settings[fn:1] still work on my F13 Thinkpad but
fails on my desktop. So the problem is probably local. Both machines are
run in a dual monitor setup. I'll try to get more detailed test tonight
and report back. If everyone thinks its "bug-worthy" I'll file a bug
report this weekend.

[fn:1] own_window_type set to override. When set to desktop it behaves
as I had described earlier. I think that is why I chose to use override
in the first place.
