Compiz ignores window placement


I've just loaded Mandriva 2009 RC2 on my EeePC 701, and it's pretty nice. I've got a quick issue though:

I'm running compiz, and have set the "place" plugin to open thunderbird on viewport 2, and zim on viewport 3. Both are also set to start maximized, as per the "window rules" plugin, and this works fine. Both programs are set to autostart via a script in ~/.kde4/Autostart.

Thunderbird starts on viewport 2, no problem. But, no matter what I put in the field for the zim entry, compiz ignores it and opens it on viewport 1. Here is what I have in the field at the moment:

(class=Zim) | class=zim | title=:Home - Zim | title=Zim | title=zim

Viewport is set to 3 (x), 1 (y). I have set compiz to 4 x viewports and 1 y.

I should also note that I had the same problem with 2008.1. I hope someone here can point me toward the solution!
