Here's the output of xprop on the main gnucash window. I don't see
anything about TRANSIENT, but I'm not exactly sure how to read this. I
wonder if it has to do with whether or not the transient Scheduled
Transactions window opens first or not?

$ xprop
XdndAware(ATOM) = ARC
0xb7, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0xbc, 0xbf, 0x10, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0
                window state: Normal
                icon window: 0x0
WM_CLASS(STRING) = "GnuCash", "GnuCash"
WM_ICON_NAME(STRING) = "Accounts - GnuCash
WM_NAME(STRING) = "Accounts - GnuCash
WM_CLIENT_LEADER(WINDOW): window id # 0xa00001
                Client accepts input or input focus: True
                Initial state is Normal State.
                bitmap id # to use for icon: 0xa00007
                bitmap id # of mask for icon: 0xa00009
                window id # of group leader: 0xa00001
                program specified location: 0, 0

Also, this time it happened to appear within the monitor coordinates:

$ wmiir read /view/0/sel/geom
302 256 1280 1007
