Position of help window cascades in v29

May

Every time I open (and later close) v29's help (F1) it's 10 pixels lower than and 20 pixels to the right of where it was the last time. This continues even across many instances of TCC (running or not). It continues until the help window is mostly off the lower right of the screen, then it moves to near the upper left corner of the screen and the cascading continues. v28 (also eviewer) doesn't do that.

That's really odd! Does anyone else see it?
 
Yes, I see the same. I copied from v28's folder the two files "eViewer.28.exe" and "TakeCommand.28.ewriter" and used them mixing 28 and 29, and I saw that the issue happens with 29's "eViewer.exe" with both help files.

The window.left and window.top specs in this file (below) are altered (by +20 and +10) whenever the help is closed. Bug or not, it's very strange behavior.

Code:
v:\> type c:\users\vefatica\appdata\local\com.ecsoftware.eviewer\eViewerdb3c08ca4de2cfba47125f00cc4a538e.ini
[App]
owner=D:\tc29\EVIEWER.EXE

[Window]
window.left=2280
window.top=180
window.width=1438
window.height=873
window.maximized=0
toolbar.displaymode=-1

[MRU]
MRU0=D:\tc29\TakeCommand.ewriter
 
And if you make that file read-only, you get

A newly downloaded eviewer.exe (v3.2.2.0) does it too. I emailed Help & Manual to ask what's up. Replacing TCC v29's eviewer.exe (v3.2.0.0) with v28's version (v2.5.0.0) seems OK.
