not so Smart Window Placement in 1.7.119

With SmartPlacement, if there's no room for the window to be drawn
without obscuring another window, you get an outline to place it
manually. OK. Now if I open a window that's covered by "StartsOnDesk"
in the database, and there's no room on the destination page, I have
to place it manually on the current page, and only then is the page
switched.

IMO, this is screwy. I should be switched to the destination before
the outline is drawn, so I can see where to place the window.
