Looks like I might have misunderstood the question below -- I thought it
meant troubles with fixing panel positions *within* a VEE program.  One of
the lab people suggests an alternative interpretation:

--------------------------------- cut here ----------------------------------

I think this person's problem is best fixed with the

   "-geometry WxH+X+Y"

command line option for veerun.  When an application runs in Windows, if the
application doesn't request a particular 'origin' on the desktop, then the OS
will assign one.  In order to prevent new windows from hiding old windows,
the OS offsets the origins that it doles out by ~25 pixels for both X and Y.
That is why creating notepad after notepad causes the new windows to march
down and to the right.  When a window's bottom right corner would wind up off
screen, the OS resets the origin to 0,0 (upper left).
