>Summary: WinGaim doesn't deal with desktop geography changes

Initial Comment:
I'm using multi-monitor under vista where I have the laptop display (1024x768) 
and a larger external LCD (1600x1200).

The default windows setup is to align the tops of the screens.  However, this 
is somewhat unnatural for me so in the Display Properties, I move the smaller 
laptop screen so that the bottoms of the screens are aligned instead of the 
tops.

What happens with my gaim buddy list window is that it keeps the same absolute 
pixel position when I move the smaller screen down rather than noting the move 
and staying positioned in the same relative space on the smaller screen.

As a result, when I 'move' the smaller screen to be aligned with the bigger 
screen in the Display properties, all my other windows move but all I see is 
the bottom part of the GAIM buddy list window.

I'm afraid I have not tried to repro this on WinXP or any other windows variant.

Ok. I understand the issue now.  It's a very minor issue that will
probably be more difficult to fix than is worthwhile, but I'll investigate
what it would take.

I don't understand what the issue is.  Are you saying that the one time
when you change your desktop shape, Gaim doesn't notice and move the buddy
list, or is this an issue that happens on a recurring basis?
