[MonoDevelop] Does MD take notice of the WIndowPosition argument - either in code or via the GUI designer ?

    Have not yet tried your suggestion re Dialog.Run() as I have been looking further into the matter.  What I've found is that all of my MD applications start in the top left corner and not in the centre as I have set in the MD designer.  I have re-installed pretty well everything and it is still a problem.  Is there any configuration item that either needs to be set or I should not have set that would impact on window placement ?

Have you tried a using window derived from Gtk.Dialog and calling
Dialog.Run () instead of Application.Run()? That's the only
significant difference I can see between what MD itself does and the
code you posted.
