I cannot reproduce this issue.

The software remembers the position of these windows by writing and reading values to the Windows registry (the same as in older versions). Perhaps some 3rd party software (this might include an integration with a CMS or similar) is either writing over the XMetaL Author settings or blocking them from being written.

Check to see that all of the keys within this location in the registry have full permission:
HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareSoftQuadXMetaL 8.0

If they don't then that's the issue.

If they do then it would be best to contact XMetaL Support directly and provide an export of the registry from that point (listed above).
They can then compare that with a default install to see if any values look weird. After that I'm not sure what would need to be done.

You could also try upgrading to 9 instead to see if that helps.
