I came across this via google.
"Stop Unity maximising windows when opened
How do I stop Unity from maximising newly opened windows?
I am running 11.04 on a desktop.
From a bit of googling I am given to understand that by default this
window maximisation occurs if the window size was greater than 75% of
the screen area when last closed.
I've looked through ccsm and "System Settings" but can't find anything
allowing me to alter (disable) this behaviour."
There wasn't a reply, but might you have earlier enlarged the window
somewhat , enough to trigger this effect? If you reduce your KMM size,
then close, then reopen, does that help?
