Version: KDE 3.0.5 CVS/CVSup/Snapshot
Installed from: Compiled sources
Compiler: Not Specified
OS/Compiler notes: (debian woody)
"Store (window) Settings" does not differ between main and "child" windows e.g. open a kmail compose window save its geometry and restart kmail. kmail will have the size of the compose window.
Expected: Kwin should store only the settings of the choosen window and not all windows which belong to the application
(Submitted via bugs.kde.org)
KWin doesn't differ between those window because it simply doesn't have enough information
to do so. If you run 'xprop' in Konsole and click on the various KMail windows, you can see that
the window properties don't give any reliable way how to differentiate those two windows. It
would probably require to change all KDE apps to change WM_CLASS on their different types of
windows (this would be also needed for bug #15329).
The KMail case should be fixed now. In case this happens with other applications, please report
the bug for the application (see also

bugreport could help).
