OK, I also have no session-management, but I start my GKrellM from a
wrapper script loaded in my ~/Desktop/Autostart folder.  It snaps to my
LH border (which has a margin the width of the GKrellM window, BTW).

Those are actually from the settings window: in 2.1.28, they're under
the Properties tab of the General Monitors Section (General on the left
list; Properties tab).  However, in the first few lines of my
~/.gkrellm2/user-config, I have the following:

sticky_state 1
dock_type 0
decorated 0
skip_taskbar 1
skip_pager 1
above 0
below 1

There you have it.  Can you post yours so I can compare and perhaps get
GKrellM to snap?
