I have several versions (0.5.3/0.6.0b/Nightly) of OTTD, but in each of them I have one strange bug. IF you are gaming with opened windows (train characteristics, Map window, etc.) and in one moment you turns/enlarge/diminish the Main Window (with OTTD title), YOU may lost your subwindows! And now you cannot to return them back! Please, look at the picture.
This task depends upon

Confirmed with 0.6.0-beta4 :P Maybe implement some alt+drag function which drags the window?

One question arises -> why do you make the window so small? Just minimise it to taskbar :)
And you can pass it pressing delete, which closes the windows and then open the window again.

...the "auto-return" of subwindows to the initial position would have been much more convenient (glue-function)

Changed from critical to medium as it can be worked around by pressing delete. Some solution will probably appear after 0.6.0 is released.

In nightlies, the window doesn't go out of the screen anymore. Though it can happen that the window's toolbar is hidden behind the main toolbar.
