Comment 17 for bug 124315

This is definitely expected behaviour for Windows users... but although I agree that it is somthing which should be addressed... I use a more cluttered approach to managing desktop windows, and I much prefer the current behavior of placing a new window in the least occupied area of the screen... so as to minimize overlap.

If this feature is added, (And I think it should be)..... it should be an option which is configurable.
