[sylpheed:33720] Window positions

Sylpheed remembers some window positions on the screen, but not all,
and sometimes to much.
This is on MS Windows Vista.
0. When you start Sylpheed the main window has the same size and
position as when you exited. So far so good.
1. The "Select folder" window, which pops up when you move or copy a
message, does not keep its size and position between sessions. This
is somewhat annoying since I like to have it as tall as possible to
get a good overview.
2. The "Compose" window keeps its size and position between sessions
_even if_ the display it was on when Sylpheed was last run is no
longer connected to the computer.
I use my laptop with an external display at work, but without an
external display at home.
Placing the "Compose" window on the external display will therefore
make it quite difficult (i.e. impossible) to compose a message when
the external display has been disconnected. (The "Compose" window
was of course closed when I disconnected the external display since
I sent the message.)
There is a workaround for item 2. Maximizing the "Compose" window
(which can be done from the Taskbar in Windows) will make the
window appear maximized on the laptop main screen. This is
workable, but not ideal.
Could the above two bugs be GTK bugs, or are they Sylpheed bugs?
I am still using Sylpheed 2.5.0. Perhaps someone can check if the
latest version behaves similarly?
