It's like it always remembers where the last window was open and always opens any new windows in the same location. Doesn't seem like XP or Vista were like that. They could remember separate locations.
Yep, the Window management seems to be buggy and fully overlaps the old window as you say.

Also, a lot of UAC prompts don't focus their window or just show up in the task bar with the window minimized. Another bug seem to be when you type something in the search inside the control panel, it removes focus from the box after the first letter is typed.

Dead menu entries and I would have liked previously used apps to show properly. A confirmation box like in XP when shutting down would have been better. This shouldn't have been carried over from Vista.
