Build Identifier: 

I have a setup where I enabled three "KWin buttons" Plasmoids to emulate the main buttons behavior when I have a maximized window. To complement it, I set the option "BorderlessMaximizedWindows=true" in kwinrc.

When I restore the window to its normal size (using the Restore button I have available as a plasmoid), the resulting window is smaller. If I repeat, I'll see the window shrink and shrink over time.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set "BorderlessMaximizedWindows=true" in kwinrc, and build a setup that allows you to properly control the maximized window through Plasma.
2. Press the "Restore" button.
3. Maximize again, and repeat.
Actual Results:  
You'll see how your window becomes smaller and smaller.

Expected Results:  
The window gets restored to its proper size.

KDE 4.8.1.
