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:

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
(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

Additional info:

This behavoir was also observed in the two previous Phoebe betas, and
persists in Phoebe3 / RH 8.0.94.

Comment 1 Alexander Larsson 2003-03-11 14:17:26 UTC
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 
                    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

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.
