 around the screen which might not be desired. That's because the code
 seems to not open a new window directly at the place where the current one
 still is which was no problem when we closed the older one first.

 improvements as the ticket mentions but we should not make it worse again.
 I wonder whether we can patch the code at a different place instead.

 change, too. For me it opens the new window in a different place than the
 old one (if you move it from the original position).

 Yes, that's true. But with your code the window would jump around even if
 you not move it which is not currently happening (at least not on the
 machine I tested).
