the next step on the desktop

In KDE we're used to resize the windows to fulfill our personal needs, 
and let the application save the "last used size". I guess that is 
because of that feature that a lot of applications doesn't care about 
the correct size.

A good experiment would be disable that feature in trunk (having a way 
to enable it again) and see what applications behave correctly and what 
apps need some tweaking.

As last note, because of that feature a correct behavior when using an 
"extended desktop" is impossible, since something that looks nice and 
proportional in a 1920x1080 screen won't fit in a 1200x800.
