+Summary: FileDialog appears in the top left corner of the screen
+Description of Problem:
+OpenFileDialog or SaveFileDialog appears in the top left corner of the 
+screen. On Microsoft .NET Framework, the dialog appears somewhere in the 
+center of the screen.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+Compile and run the following program.
+using System;
+using System.Windows.Forms;
+class Test {
+    [STAThread]
+    static void Main() {
+        new OpenFileDialog().ShowDialog();
+    }
+Actual Results:
+A file dialog in the top left corner of the screen.
+Expected Results:
+A file dialog somewhere in the center of the screen.
+How often does this happen? 
+Always, it seems. Even if I move the dialog, next time it is still shown 
+in the corner.
+Additional Information:
+Apparently, FileDialog seems to try to remember it's last position. This 
+does not seem to work. A better solution in the short term would be to 
+simply make the form start in the center of the screen. I think this could 
+be achieved by changing (in FileDialog.cs, in the constructor)
+			if (formConfigLocation != Point.Empty) {
+				form.Location = formConfigLocation;
+			}
+                  form.StartPosition = FormStartPosition.CenterScreen;
