when launching galculator, a small, empty window is drawn to the screen before all the buttons and other widgets are loaded, at which point the window is resized to fit those widgets. i don't know about gnome, but in all the window managers i have used (currently openbox), the wm positions the window where there is available space, only to have the window later resize itself -- occasionally resulting in a large portion of the window going off-screen.

it's been a long time since i've fiddled with any gtk code, but there is a function to draw the main window; this function is meant to be called after all the widgets have been added to the screen, so that the window size is determined before it is drawn.

    We believe that this bug has been fixed in a recent galculator release. Thank you for reporting.
