Unexpected window maximization on cinnamon desktop

Post by bpeary » Mon Dec 24, 2012 7:49 pm

Following update pack 6 installation I note the following odd behavior not seen with update pack 5. If I re-size the window for any program too big (still working on that definition, but it's something like 'with borders within 1/2" of the screen edges'), then the next time I launch that program it maximizes rather than take the settings I left it at.

I can return it to its non-maximized size by clicking on the - sign, but unless I physically drag the edges down below that trigger point of about 1/2" from the edge, it will continue to maximize on launch. If I make the window smaller, then it consistently returns to the smaller size, but it's smaller than I'd prefer.

Any suggestions on this?

This amd-64system has a nvidia GeForce 210/PCIe/SSE2 driver and a 1280x1024 screen resolution.

Looks like it's a known problem:
