(I'm navigated from stackoverflow.com where I asked almost the same question)
When I want to use additional windows, let's say for example "Basic Math Input", I feel reluctant to find visually where they are in the display. So I tend to "re-open" them by clicking "Palette" -> their name.
However, when I do so, the window rearranges its position and goes up too high so that its bar (and often even some region of it that contains function panes) doesn't appear like this figure.
"Basic Math Input" windows lies left. With this, I have no way to move this window. Luckily all function panes are shown so it still provides all functionality but like I said earlier some panes hide often.
Tedious workaround on Mac is to arrange the displays (I'm using multiple displays) whatever. Then window's bar appears like this:
Is there any easier way to resolve this? I've seen this happens to many other additional windows that are available in "Palette" section.

I've tested Ubuntu linux 11.10 with 2 displays, and it doesn't give the same issue.
