After reading the relevant part of GTK documentation, I don't think
GTK_WIN_POS_CENTER_ALWAYS is what you want here.
GTK_WIN_POS_CENTER_ON_PARENT seems like a better fit, if you insist on
going against what window managers do.

IMHO, window placement is a job for the window manager, and if you're
using a good one, you won't have any "unwieldy interacting". I also
didn't observe any issue with this on Windows.
