Maybe - depends on your version

Yes! ;-)

If you are running 0.10.0 final, please open a new bug report with a backtrace 
of the crash. If you are running any release candidate, including the latest, 
please update to 0.10.0 final and test with this.

Usually the window size is stored. The initial size, after first use, is set 
by the window manager.

0.10.0 will convert your database to a new format that 0.9 does not 
understand. The old file is still there and untouched. But work that you do on 
the new file won't get into the old file and vice versa. You can delete the 
new file (digikam4.db) now and convert again when you definitely switch.
