While logged into gmail chat talking to a friend, I accidentally dragged a tab into it's own window.When I expanded the other window and then dragged the gmail window back into the previous window, the gmail chat were floating in the middle of my emails.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open two tabs (one of them gmail)
2.Start a chat with a friend
3.Drag Gmail tab out into it's own window
4.Drag to expand(do not hit the maximize button) the first browser window
5.Drag the Gmail tab back into the now expanded first browser
Actual Results:  
Gmail chats will be floating in the middle of the emails.

Expected Results:  
The Gmail chats should align along the bottom of the email window like normal.

It appears they will take the position of the window that you drug to the expanded window. They can be remedied by hitting the Maximize button at any time.
