Allegro CL 4.1
CLIM 1.1
Sparc 2

i'm using open-window-stream, and discovering that the initargs :left
and :top appear to have little/no effect on window placement. aren't
they supposed to position the upper-left corner of the window at those
coordinates? (relative to the root, of course)

if not, what actually does? I need to place some windows very exactly
(part of the problem seems to be that subsequent windows 'tile'
diagonally, which I absolutely DO NOT want--this will be disconcerting
to our customers).

this work is for creating progress-indicator windows, which I'll
donate as soon as I'm happy with them. they're vaguely similar to the
mac-style progress windows, with a percentage-bar and some descriptive
text. the fn-calls are similar to the genera fns noting-progress and
related things.
