Answer: One answer is to pass the right hints to the window manager, perhaps
using XSetWMNormalHints.  Another approach comes from Shane Burgess
(shane@radionics.com) who writes:

By setting the XmNdefaultPosition resource (on XmBulletinBoard or its
subclasses, including the message dialogs) to False, I've found that all my
XmNx & XmNy requests gets set correctly.

Pete Sakalaukus (sakalauk@pelican.st.usm.edu) says that XmNdefaultPosition
only works with olwm, not mwm.
