This seems to have been fixed by one of your recent changes. I just ran the bad_pos script 100 times in a for loop and didn't see a problem. Closing report.

Attached is some sample code which attempts to move a figure window to the lower left corner. It occasionally works on the first try, but after that it never works. The call to set is ignored and the default position for a new window is used.

This isn't a problem with the 'qt' toolkit.

To test, download bad_pos.m and then repeatedly run 'bad_pos' in Octave.
