     if( isDesktop())
->      if (geometry() == workspace()->clientArea( ScreenArea, this ))
         QRect area = workspace()->clientArea( FullArea, this );
         if( geometry() != area )
             setGeometry( area );

Is the part of geometry.cpp and there is similar in manage.cpp. The lines 
between -> and <- is what i added, but depending on wether kwin or plasma 
will get the resize first this will fail!
Why kwin needs to resize desktop-type windows, i dont know!
