Bug#4267: xosview doesn't understand -geometry very well

Package: xosview
Version: 1.3.2-1

I ran xosview with this command:

    xosview -geometry 48x48+388+0 &

and indeed from xlsclients -l:

    Window 0x2800002:
      Machine:  sfere
      Name:  xosview@sfere
      Icon Name:  xosview@sfere
      Command:  xosview -geometry 48x48+388+0
      Instance/Class:  xosview/xosview

...but (as you can see below) the window is not in the correct

    xwininfo: Window id: 0x2800002 "xosview@sfere"

      Absolute upper-left X:  392
      Absolute upper-left Y:  3
      Relative upper-left X:  0
      Relative upper-left Y:  0
      Width: 48
      Height: 48
      Depth: 8
      Visual Class: PseudoColor
      Border width: 0
      Class: InputOutput
      Colormap: 0x26 (installed)
      Bit Gravity State: NorthWestGravity
      Window Gravity State: NorthWestGravity
      Backing Store State: NotUseful
      Save Under State: no
      Map State: IsViewable
      Override Redirect State: no
      Corners:  +392+3  -160+3  -160-399  +392-399
      -geometry 48x48+390+1

Sometimes xosview positions itself near, but not exactly in, the right
place; sometimes it positions itself in the upper left corner of the
screen; and occasionally it even ends up in the right place.
