When I move the gvim window by means of the <windows-key + left/right> key combination to the left or right half of the screen, it seems gvim doesn't properly notice this change. When I invoke any command with :vert prepended (e.g. :vert split), gvim moves the gvim window back to the previous position on the screen.

      Reproduced with 7.3.762 on 64-bit Windows 7.

      gvim -N -u NONE -i NONE
      gvim window pops up near middle of screen with 256x80 lines/columns
      <Windows key>+<Left>
      gvim moves to left side of screen, 48x95 lines/columns
      :vert split
      gvim window unnecessarily moves by itself to be somewhat off-screen, still at 48x95

      This also happens with the :vnew command.

      This looks like a bug. Opening a split window should not move the application window.
