Hmmm maybe this is the wrong bug report, this one is about docked panes.
i'll try to find the right one again s/th with hi-res screens).

Sorry for the noise

I usually have the Octave main GUI window on a 1920x1200 monitor and the editor pane on a 1024x1280 monitor (rotated 90 degrees) to the right of it.
Until this fix Octave would remember that editor pane position. But now, even if the editor pane has just a few pixel columns on the smaller right monitor, Octave resets the editor pane position to the upper left corner of the larger 1920x1200 monitor. This behavior is very annoying.

Thanks for the report. I have introduced this bug with a recent changeset. Actually it is a typo. A fix will be pushed soon.

I always place the editor above the command window, both docked.
After restarting gui, these settings are lost, both widgets are tabbed now.

This happens in current 5.0.1 (stable) but not in 6.0.0 (default) branch.
