compiz has lots of window-management plugins but none that can set
this :( also, the certificate-popup and the newVersion-popup behave
differently. there must be some status set by sylpheed. however,
accepting the certificate or clicking "don't show this...again"
also don't work. seems that updating to 3.0.0 broke some things.
i will now try reinstalling 3.0.0 (switched back to 2.7.1) with new
configuration. possibly IMAP works then too. the window placement will
definetly not work better then.
