Request: Don't allow folders to open exactly on top of previous folder

If there is a folder already open, opening another perfectly hides the previous window. This is confusing to new users, they think the previous window disappeared. If the new window would appear slightly down and to the right, they would know the last window was still there. If you want to make it an option, fine, but the default should be set to not cover the previous window directly.

Review your Window Manager settings. Agreed that Automatic should be the default rather than Centre.
