eog initial size on triple head configuration

Bug Description

Binary package hint: eog

eog obviously starts up with about 80% of screen width. If the screen is e.g. 3840 x 1024, eog starts with 2880x2065+480+46 which is really annoying as one has to move and resize the window (not necessarily the shown image) a few times to completely fit into the visible screen.
I propose two solutions:
a) keep last window position in mind an re-use it on startup
b) calculate on base of the screen height, not the screen width

anyway, thanks for providing this software ;)
