window position for VirtualBox is not saved

Reported by: MartyS Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: GUI
Version: VirtualBox 2.1.2 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: Mac OS X


Each time I run VirtualBox the main window listing the guests is always in the same position on the monitor. I can move the window but it will revert back to the original place the next time I run the GUI. One of the prime reasons for my wanting to move the window is that it's about half way off the screen!

I see in the VirtualBox.xml file that there appear to be a window coordinates entry:

<ExtraDataItem name="GUI/LastWindowPosition" value="282,542,770,550"/>

It may be that I could try changing those values but the GUI should automatically remember the true, last position and restore to that on each new run. I'm also not familiar with 4 numbers being needed to position a single window so an explanation of the item would be of help to me.

I've found that the window moves down about 50 pixels each time VBox 2.1.4 is closed and reopened.
