That is not a vanilla GNOME desktop session you are running there.

  GNOME randomes window locations in its favorite pop-out

Status in ubuntu-gnome-meta package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I'm working on Ubuntu 18.04, fully patched with dist-upgrade.

  I layout 4 terminals as shown in the attached image. The order of the
  favorite pop-out is top-to-bottom: (a) is (1) top left, (b) is (2)
  bottom left, (c) is (3) top right, and (d) is (4) bottom right.

  After the favorite pop-out window closes, GNOME will randomize the
  order in the favorite pop-out. As an example, (a) in the pop-out may
  become terminal (3), and (d) in the pop-out may become terminal (1).
  It is incredibly annoying behavior since I can't quickly jump back to
  the terminal (1) by clicking the (a) pop-out.

  For me, each terminal is used for a specific task. I usually have 8 or
  10 terminals open. I might have Emacs open in Terminal (1), a cp
  command in terminal (2), and a compiler in terminal (3). I try to
  quickly rotate among them to get work done.
