This bug depends on the X11 and window manager combination, so if you use X11 on other platforms, you can be affected too.
If I maximize (no fullscreen) the celestia main window and quit, the values for pos in the config file are negative.
You can read the explanation in the qt4 docs (application-windows.html#window-geometry).
Therefore celestia starts with its default values for pos and size.
Until now I find only values in the range from -5 to -2, depending on the selected window style in KDE.
This is only a workaround :
Code: Select all

Maybe it would be better to change the values before saving
