replace the first "+" by an "x", so that you actually follow the syntax of 
X11 "geometries". However pd doesn't follow the X11 standard completely, 
as it doesn't accept 234x534-123-345 and such, which compute position from 
the bottom and/or righthand edge of the screen.

canvas_relocate says that whenever you get any of its arguments wrong,
which probably means that Miller doesn't want you to use it; but don't we
all know what happens to features that Miller doesn't want us to use...
