Yes, I'm aware of that. It's a bug or feature in the GUI toolkit we use
(GTK+ 1.2).  The command to set the geometry includes the window
decorations, but the command to get the geometry doesn't...

It'll probably not be fixed until we decide to upgrade to GTK+ 2.0.

I'll change the default location, but if you've already changed your
settings find the "set geometry" commands in .gnubgautorc and the the
-1's to 20.

You can insert commands into a file called .gnubgrc which is read after
.gnubgautorc. For example, to open the game list and nnotation window
you should insert the following two commands in .gnubgrc:

set annotation on
list game
