Is there a patch to fix the problem where XV pulls up new windows in another part of the virtual desktop? This may be specific to tvtwm. Basically it will open a new window in the bottom left of the desktop if you are in the upper left and vice versa.
Do you mean all of its new windows or only specific ones? By default, it puts the info window ("i") in the upper right corner, the color editor ("e") in the lower left corner, the schnauzer in the lower right corner, and the main control window (right-click) and set-size window ("S") more or less where the image is. It seems to be completely consistent to me, and I'm pretty sure there's some .Xdefaults setting to move them somewhere else, but I haven't ever bothered to look.
If tvtwm is putting the same window in different places at different times, it's probably overriding the application's requested position. I use fvwm, FWIW.
