[PyQt] Problems Saving Window Position on X11

I have been trying to get window geometry saving/restoring working
correctly as outlined in this document:
It works fine if I show the window before setting the size and
position. However, that creates that ugly flicker where the window is
first displayed in its default position and then moved. However, if I
load the window's position before the show() call, and then NOT
move/resize the window, the window's position is saved at (0, 0). To
add another twist to this, if I hide the status bar before loading and
setting the window's position, then it will work except that the
coordinates are offset by (-5, -22) when I save. If I show the status
bar at any point then it will save the window's position at (0,0) if I
don't move it. The size is always correct. This just affects the position.
* Show window, load and set position -- works but has that flicker
* load and set position, show window -- will reset the window's position
to (0,0) if you did not move the application in the previous run.
* hide status bar, load and set position, show window -- if you do not
move the application it will save it offset by (-5, -22).
Any ideas on why the position is saved at (0,0) if I don't move the
window? How can I work around this? Thanks.
