If a user has opened the preferences window, and then moves it but does not
close it, and then proceeds to use other app windows (browser windows, mail
client, editor, etc.), selecting to edit preferences from any of the open
windows does the correct thing:  It brings the preference window to the front in
focus in the last known position.

However, should the user dismiss the window, the last known position is
remembered when the window is reopened.  This is incorrect.  Upon dismissing the
window, the next time that the user opens the preferences, it should be
positioned relative to the window from which the preferences are opened.

Effectively, while it is still open, the user knows that it is open and uses it
relative to what the user is currently doing.  Once dismissed, the prior
interaction with the preference window is complete.  Once opened again, the
interaction is a new one, and not a continuation of the previous one.

If user move Preferences window to some position then there was some reason for it and not saving it's position is bad idea here. Proposing WONTFIX
