Well, I can't really say as far as Sawfish or Enlightenment
go, but I use WindowMaker and it has no trouble remembering
where my windows go. I generally have 4 xterms open on
desktops 1-4 (one each), and they start up in exactly the
same configurations each time I log in.
I know this doesn't help with those windowmanagers, but
if you're looking, you could do a lot worse than WindowMaker.

Those who are willing to sacrifice essential liberties for a little
order, will lose both and deserve neither. -- Benjamin Franklin
History teaches that grave threats to liberty often come in times
of urgency, when constitutional rights seem too extravagant to
endure. -- Justice Thurgood Marshall, 1989
