 After saving the form, when I switch out of design mode or simply open the form fresh, the
placement of the controls is not what it was when I saved it.  If I dismiss the "live" form
and then right click on the form from the main database window and choose edit, the controls
are where they belong.

It depends on what mode you created the form. Base opens forms in web 
mode, if you created in print view it can be messed up.
AOO has a know bug with forms web mode, the forms first opens in print 
view. This will be corrected in AOO 3.4.1.
Work around when you start Base open form in edit mode, switch between 
views (print, web), save form.
When you reopen it, will work correctly.
