Glimmr/Flexible Windows: Window above the status line?

g-placeabove seems to open a window above the main-window, but below the status line. Attempts to get the status line to spawn a window have failed.
Do I need to close it down somehow, do window generation, and then open it above the main window?

You should be able to do this by using Glulx Status Window Control, which will let you specify when the status window should be opened. If you open it after your upper window is opened, it will appear between the main window and your upper window.
