[gephi-dev] How to integrate a new perspective?

I did a new perspective, but after looking at how it looked I decided
that doing it as 3 new panels in the Overview Perspective would work better.
This generally works, but I'm seeing some odd behavior. I followed the
although I may have left 'Open at application start' unchecked.
What I implemented in my module was just a test case- my 3 windows, each
with just a few dummy controls to give some content. I wanted to get the
integration to gephi sorted out before migrating the content and
I specified one panel in graph mode / position, one panel in ranking mode,
and one panel in timeline mode. The overview perspective already has windows
in some of these positions. I did a build on my module, then a 'clean and
build all' on gephi 0.7beta, then a run.
1) the windows didn't show up where I specified, although I could move them
2) When switching between perspectives I would sometimes see my windows
appear in those perspectives, sometime not. Sometimes the windows would
move, or I would see multiple copies of the same window at different
locations within the top-level frame.
I'd be happy to provide my simple module in case anybody has time to look to
see what I might have done wrong, or to see if they can replicate the
