I can propose you a workaround for this 10 problem which is working for me. First of 9 all you obtain the geometry of the window 8 with the following command:

xwininfo -id $(xprop -root | awk '/_NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW\(WINDOW\)/{print $NF}')

You will get 7 something like this:

  Absolute upper-left X:  783
  Absolute upper-left Y:  344
  Relative upper-left X:  0
  Relative upper-left Y:  0
  Width: 722
  Height: 434
  Depth: 32
  Visual: 0x76
  Visual Class: TrueColor
  Border width: 0
  Class: InputOutput
  Colormap: 0x4400005 (not installed)
  Bit Gravity State: NorthWestGravity
  Window Gravity State: NorthWestGravity
  Backing Store State: NotUseful
  Save Under State: no
  Map State: IsViewable
  Override Redirect State: no
  Corners:  +783+344  -175+344  -175-272  +783-272
  -geometry 80x24+775+315

Neither the information 6 in the -geometry 80x24+775+315 section nor the information in Absolute upper-left X: 783 and 5 Absolute upper-left Y: 344 allows you to launch a gnome-terminal in 4 the same position than the current on. You 3 have to mix both data to get the appropriate 2 information.

gnome-terminal --geometry=80x24+783+315

Note: I have check this under 1 Ubuntu 11.10 | Unity
