Has anybody who has replaced windsheild noticed an increase in the effectiveness of their windsheild wipers?  I've tried cleaning the window with all kinds of things, running new bosch blades, all to no avail.  My latest guess is the windsheild stone pits.  Any ideas or experience with this?

Subject: [200q20v] glass replacement tip 

Just a tip...this shop, unlike the last, taped two pieces of tape from the 
top of the car to the glass. "Yhea, that's why the old glass was so 
low. They didn't tape it, and it slid down before the adhesive 
set. Leave the tape on for a day or so." 

They mangled a cover chrome clip in the middle at the bottom; I pointed it 
out, and asked them to fix it. They got a new clip and put it in, but it 
looks kind of half-baked; not very flush/tight, so I'm a little annoyed 
about that, but I'll live; the chrome at first look appeared much 
better than the last replacement windshield. Total came to $300-ish for 
generic glass, including labor, NY sales tax, etc.
