Window positions were not saved correctly. So, no jumping. With the fixed saving the restore option will create jumping windows under enlightenment.

Ok, here are some notes:

"Use windowmanager setting" will not position the window at all. Your window manager will decide where to put it. If it supports some nice geometry management and can restore the windows correctly this will be nice, if not (e.g. sawfish) then it will look like crap.

"Default" let decide the IDE where to put the window. This will create a window layout similar to Delphi. A good start, but probably not what you want.

"Restore window geometry" saves the window positions on every quit and everytime you click OK in the environment options. Next time lazarus starts, these will be restored. 

"Custom" allows to explicit define a window position via Left, Top, Width and Height. Use the "Get Position" Button to read the current window position.

"Apply" will show, where the window will be placed next time.
