Need help with onConfigureEvent() handler

I am trying to use the bool onConfigureEvent(GdkEventConfigure* event, Widget widget) to store/restore Window position. I needed this because when onDestroy() handler gets called (user pressed the X button) the X and Y positions are by default set to 0. However, it seems that event.x and event.y coordinates are taken without window decorations. Is there a way to fix this?

I don't know it the gdk window includes the decorations, but you can try
this:

int x,y;

gdk_window_get_origin(event.window, &x, &y)
