Here additional information from anothers user. Like him, I hide a
bottom taskbar. Hope it can help.



When opening gvim as a large window (gvim -geom 180x70) its smart
placed below the taskbar at the bottom of the screen. If the taskbar is
set to autohide, gvim will drop off the screen. Maybe 10 pixels are
lost, if started with a file (gvim /etc/services) then i lose the tail
of the 'p' in 'Top' in the bottom right corner.

When starting xterm as a large window (xterm -geom 100x100) its placed
accurately within the screen and above the taskbar. Starting xterm as a
small window places it centrally as expected, depending on the slider
configuration for window smart placement.

Interestingly when gvim is started as a small window, same size as
xterm (-geom 30x20), its not centrally placed, but smart placed around
the edge of the screen, as I have a lot of windows open. When a small
gvim is placed along the bottom it still is shifted down behind the
taskbar, but not as far as a large window is.

It seems as though xfce does not know the exact size of the gvim window
to place it accurately and to know whether to smart place it or not.
