Bug Description

When a user closes a application, the last size and position of the application windows should be recorded. The next time the user starts the application the windows should re-open in exactly the same location they were in when the application closed.

The only excption is when a window's last position is partially off screen. In this case the window should be restored to the nearest position in which all four sides of the window are completly on screen.
