After adjusting some (unrelated?) diskmount settings, I can't seem to replicate the issue any longer.

Possibly due to the partition being full in vmware, current theory.

Deskbar writes its settings to disk on shutdown including its current position so no disk space might indeed be the culprit here. Try changing Deskbar's position and then run the following command from Terminal:

hey Deskbar QUIT && Deskbar

This will restart Deskbar, saving its settings to disk without rebooting so you can more easily test if Deskbar will remember its position. Deskbar may also spit out some useful information to Terminal.
