Description Elton Woo 2003-03-08 06:47:10 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030221 Description of problem: If one or more windows of Nautilus are opened and _at least one_ is maximized, then closed, subsequent 'new' windows will load in maximized state, and 'refuse' to return to the default size. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open one or more Nautilus windows. Maximize _at least_ one window 2. Close maximized window(s) whilst in that state. 3. Open new windows Actual Results: Newly opened windows open maximized, and will not return to "default" (i.e. "unmaximized") state. They have to be resized manually. Expected Results: New windows should open at default size (e.g. 1/3 full-screen size). Additional info: This behavoir was also observed in the two previous Phoebe betas, and persists in Phoebe3 / RH 8.0.94. Video subsystem: Viewsonic 17" monitor JATON 3DForce B-32 Plus AGP video card (32Mb SGRAM) Resolution: 1024 x 768 x 32-bit. All current (to Feb. 22) updates have been applied from rawhide.

I guess nautilus shouldn't store the last window size if the window is maximized.
Comment 2 Elton Woo 2003-03-11 17:13:12 UTC
Let me repeat this: 1) Open _two or more_ Nautilus windows. 2) Maximize *one* window 3) Close the maximized one *first*, THEN 4) Close the other window(s) which are NOT maximized. 5) Open a new window. Result: Newly opened window(s) start up maximized. EXPECTED Result: Newly opened windows should start up _UN-maximized_ #COMMENT: Shouldn't the new window remember the _last state_? i.e. the unmaximized state, since that was the _last size_ when the *last opened* window was closed? IMHO, if the _last opened_ window were maximized, and the _last one_ to be closed _while in that state_, then and only then, would it be logical for _newly opened windows to start up maximized_, not vice-versa, as is now the case ...
Comment 3 Alexander Larsson 2003-03-12 09:09:41 UTC
Did the two windows both show the same location? Window geometry is stored per-directory. Anyway, this is fixed in gnome cvs by never storing the geometry of a maximized window. That makes no sense anyway.

Created attachment 90577 [details] screen captures of windows opened and closed I hope this can more clearly illustrate what happens (a "picture being worth a thousand words"... in effect).
Comment 5 Alexander Larsson 2003-03-13 09:12:27 UTC
In other words, it behaves exactly like i said, and is now fixed in cvs.
Comment 6 Alexander Larsson 2003-05-27 11:51:45 UTC
fixed in rawhide.
