Version: (using KDE KDE 3.5.4)
Installed from: Mandriva RPMs
The virtual desktop where it is restored seems to be random.
The PDF file is local.
Do you only see this happening with KPDF or with other applications as well. Because I suspect the KDE Session Manager is responsible for this.
I just have noticed that for KMail. But it has happened only once at the moment.
Note that I upgraded from KDE 3.4 to KDE 3.5 without changing my /home directory.

Can you confirm the bugreport with any other version that 3.5.4 (3.5.5 will be released very soon)?
The last KDE version I used was the one delivered with Mandriva 2006, and I think it was KDE 3.4.3.
With KDE 3.4.3, I had this problem with Kate, and so I compelled Kate to appear always on the same virtual desktop. It was not a problem, as this is an application that I launch only once. But this was the only application that had this problem.
I'm going to remove the virtual desktop forcing for Kate to see how it behaves now. I will post the result a.s.a.p.
I made a little test with a virgin user:
This user has 4 virtual desktop, with a KPDF on the desktop 2 and a Kate on the desktop 3, all maximized.
When I log in again, the Kate window is restored on the good desktop, but the KPDF one is restored on the same desktop (3). Moreover, its window is a little one, not maximized.
KPDF's widget name is messed up. Just a quick look at the two ctors in kpdf/shell/shell.cpp shows they don't do the same.

Fix ¿finally? kpdf wrong restoring on session restore, thanks a lot Lubos for finding the problem.

I am running KDE 3.5.5 on Gentoo. I have applied the patch from comment #8 and kpdf widnows are now restored on the correct desktop. But, as mentioned in comment #6, they are restored as little windows and not as maximized ones ( they were maximized when I logged out ). Is there some other patch I need to apply to make kpdf restore widnow sizes properly or should I open a new bug ?
