With GNOME Shell and Mutter, Pitivi utility windows get configured with +24 pixels of vertical position on every startup

In my case, I
- connect to "configure-event" and use event.y to save the new Y position
- on startup, I get grab the previous Y value (before I connect to "configure-event") and use the "move" method to position it back to the previously saved values.
However, as the attached screencast demonstrates, it seems like Mutter is pushing windows downwards when they're being created/configured.
So if in my saved file, if I have a Y position of 51, on the next startup the window will be "configured" at 51+24 = 75. Afterwards, it will be at 75+24 = 99, and so on.
