In principle, one could shrink the window to zero (perhaps make it small, then 
turn on the toolbar/statusbar).  While it is hard to imagine when this could 
be useful, it is similarly hard to argue that we should prevent it, or that 
kst should die if it happens....

Baring recent changes, kst has a minimum size for the window.  With the 
statusbar and toolbar off, a usable plot gets drawn.  With them on, the draw 
space is not zero, but is too small to draw a plot.  It is possible (I 
haven't verified this) that with an appropriately huge menu font, the minimum 
size would allow the pixmap size to shrink to zero.

I think that the correct behavior should be:
-no preset minimum size.
-kst should happily sit with a zero sized window until it gets made larger 

But I don't feel strongly enough to suggest that anyone do anything about
