Gnome has a special geometry parser for the above, so it does
handle the -0 case, but its implemented wrong, and tries to 
do 'x = screenwidth + x offset', etc (at least last time I looked,
I let Federico know, but i dont think anything happened about it).

But still, the lack of gravity hint means it could never quite work
