Description Praedor Tempus 2009-05-08 19:19:05 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.2.2)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Mandriva RPMs

Every time I start up kontact, quassel, or start them anew, I have to resize the windows because kwin insists on drawing them too small.  Kwin should remember window sizes upon application closing or minimization or system shutdown and repaint them at the same size henceforth - until the user resizes to a different size.

geometries are stored by apps (in their rcs), at least for kontakt this works here

you may have setup a kwin rule overriding this

otherwise these apps fail to write their geometries because:
- you don't have write permissions on the config file (e.g. ~/.kde[4]/share/config/kontactrc)
- the app doesn't quit but segfaults

afaics kwin does not even restrict "stupid" size requests ( i once had a Height=0xfffffff entry for konqueror... :-\ )
