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

I guess nautilus shouldn't store the last window size if the window is maximized.
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 ...
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.

I hope this can more clearly illustrate what happens (a "picture being
worth a thousand words"... in effect).
In other words, it behaves exactly like i said, and is now fixed in cvs.
fixed in rawhide.
