It happens both in default and stacked mode. Also there's no difference
if I've got one or couple windows on the screen.
The thing is that I was successfully using the same version of wmii
before and it was wonderfully placing windows in the center, everything
changed about a month ago after reinstalling my system and all apps from
scratch, unfortunately a lot of dependent applications have been updated
  as well so I can't really trace the culprit.
