Toolbox window position not being properly restored on launch
On Windows 7 Home Premium x64, GIMP does not properly restore the position of the Toolbox window with "Save window positions on exit" checked in Preferences > Window Management. The Toolbox window does retain its size, but is placed in a seemingly random place in the top-left area of the screen every time GIMP is launched. Other windows retain their size and shape perfectly. I've searched for a solution to this problem but couldn't find one. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

RE: Toolbox window position not being properly restored on launch
When Gimp isn't running, go to your Gimp profile and edit the "sessionrc" file. What does the "(session-info "toolbox")" section says?

Here:

Code:
# GIMP sessionrc
#
# This file takes session-specific info (that is info, you want to keep
# between two GIMP sessions).  You are not supposed to edit it manually, but
# of course you can do.  The sessionrc will be entirely rewritten every time
# you quit GIMP.  If this file isn't found, defaults are used.

(session-info "dock" "dock"
    (position 1705 0)
    (size 200 745)
    (open-on-exit)
    (aux-info
        (show-image-menu "true")
        (follow-active-image "true"))
    (dock
        (book
            (current-page 0)
            (dockable "gimp-layer-list"
                (tab-style icon)
                (preview-size 32))
            (dockable "gimp-channel-list"
                (tab-style icon)
                (preview-size 32))
            (dockable "gimp-vectors-list"
                (tab-style icon)
                (preview-size 32))
            (dockable "gimp-undo-history"
                (tab-style icon)))
        (book
            (position 364)
            (current-page 0)
            (dockable "gimp-brush-grid"
                (tab-style preview))
            (dockable "gimp-pattern-grid"
                (tab-style preview))
            (dockable "gimp-gradient-list"
                (tab-style preview)))))
(session-info "toolbox" "dock"
    (position 0 0)
    (size 160 745)
    (open-on-exit)
    (dock
        (book
            (current-page 0)
            (dockable "gimp-tool-options"
                (tab-style icon)))))
(session-info "toplevel" "gimp-preferences-dialog"
    (position 221 5))
(session-info "display" "gimp-empty-image-window"
    (position 720 510)
    (size 479 180))

(last-tip-shown 7)

# end of sessionrc

The Toolbox seems to be where I want it to be, at (0,0). It appears that maybe the problem is unfortunately with Windows and not GIMP.
