It was this one that Andrew posted:
# fix window button positions and focus
gconftool-2 -s /apps/metacity/general/button_layout --type=string

After you've run that, it should be permanent until something
specifically changes it back.

Note that if you're using GNOME 3, it won't be gconf, it'll be dconf and
a different setting that you need to override with a schema.
