Why won't my 17" Macbook Pro remember where I put windows when I connect my external monitor?

I have a 17" Macbook Pro. I use it as my work computer. When I sit down at my desk, I connect it to an external 21" Samsung monitor, and use the MBP alongside as my secondary monitor.
Before updating to Snow Leopard, when I plugged in my Samsung,my MBP would remember that I keep my email and chat windows on the MBP screen and everything else I put on the Samsung monitor. Windows would individually "remember" where they belonged.
After I updated to Snow Leopard, when I plug in the Samsung, everything appears on the Samsung and I have to drag my email and chat windows over to the MBP screen. It's like they disabled something in the multiple monitor functionality.
I've been living with it, since it really only affects me at the beginning of the day when I first plug in, but I thought I'd consult the hive mind to see if anyone can shed any light on this or offer solutions.
