Change on this behaviuor could be easy to fix using wxWindow::CentreOnParent().

I have two monitors, each 28" wide. (And it still seems like I am going blind.) I don't always want dialogs to appear on top of my work, so I have started implementing
retentative dialog coordinates:
where the dialog remembers its last size and position. This way the The only improvement I can think of to this and one which dove-tails in your idea, is to call CentreOnParent() on the first showing of the dialog. However, I think you might be seeing a platform specific artifact. Usually the dialogs I see are centered on the parent even without this call.

That could be great, do you think to make the "retentative dialog coordinates" switchable in the configuration dialog ?

No. I said I was 100 % sold on it.
