would reset it back to zero. Fluxbox/Openbox don't do it and allow to
set negative values (and so does Windows).
All that Vim does is calling gtk_window_move() with the new x and y

does not mention, that negative values are forbidden. Might be still
some unwanted effect in the way vim uses the gtk-toolkit.
