(Unless Lispworks is buggy), this is a window manager issue, not a CLIM
issue.  (You should see the same behavior for non-Lisp applications).

Try adding the following to your .twmrc file:
RandomPlacement				# Don't ask the user where windows go.
UsePPosition "non-zero"			# Allow applications to specify 
					# window position.
