Your criticism is, TMHO, too general and by that wrong.
Certainly there are certain scenarios where this occurs.

(1) Never ever one of my stack window appeared in a wrong
place. Not on Mac, nor on Win, nor on linux.
What's sometimes wrong are the rects of some IDE windows.
Tools: No, SE: often, PI: mostly no, PB: I don't use it.

Since we are developers, this needs one line of code per
window to have it correctly (less than your complaints).

(2) I have this sometimes also here but only when dragging
widgets from the tools window. This is a bug in the IDE
which can be avoided if double-clicking the widget's icon,
or if inserting from the menu Object > New Widget.

(3) The IDE 'dies' here if and only if there are handlers
running that *I* started and didn't kill. So it may be also
with you the 'inappropriate' coding? Certainly the IDE does
not 'die'/'hang' from nothing.
