BUG in Weather gadget: gadget moves from right to left after days!
I found a bug in the Weather gadget: if you place the weather gadget on the
desktop then that gadget progressively moves from right to left after several
days/reboots.

Reproduction steps:
1. detach the Weather gadget from the sidebar and put it on the desktop
2. after days you used the PC i.e. after several reboots, the gadget
progressively moves its position from the right to the left of screen i.e.
after several days/reboots the gadget is moved to the left of the screen.

Might be a feature similar to clouds rolling across the sky, marking the
passage of time ;-)

This is a delayed response, but I'm catching up. This isn't a Weather gadget
problem, it's the case on my machine with /all/ gadgets. They all move to
the left, like a marching army. I moved them back to the far right again
last night, after they'd moved about 2" to the left on my 24" monitor. I did
/not/ run any games or change resolutions during that time. Not a big deal;
just a bit frustrating.

Re: BUG in Weather gadget: gadget moves from right to left after days!
This can be the result of another graphics program interfering with the
settings you have chosen. Have you run games or other
graphics-intensive programs in between the times the gadgets were in the
correct place and when they move?

Some programmers don't follow the SDK and try to manufacturer their own
system calls and then leave your computer misconfigured when the program
is finished. Alas! Gadgets move around when you encounter such a
situation.
