Well, they are not settings, actually, so they aren't saved. Yeah, I
know it shouldn't be in the settings dialog then ...

However, the panel is supposed to detect the different screen size and
then set the same relative position, so it should have worked.

Hmm, looking at the code, I see a comment saying it doesn't work
properly yet ;-)

Could you file a bug report on the bug tracker?
