Description Arcterex 2003-10-15 07:12:48 UTC
Not sure if this is a bug in pan or gnome-*, but pan does not appear to
save the maximized state of it's window after a clean exit.

To duplicate:
1. open pan, note it's in a non-maximized state (for me anyway)
2. file->exit to ensure you are exiting cleanly
3. restart pan and note that it is back to having the same position and
non-maximized state

What should happen: 
Pan should save it's window size, position and maximized/non-maximized
state on exit, and attempt to return to the previous state when it is
re-started again.

I attempted to remove the geometry keys from the ~/.pan/config.xml file and
then restart pan (it started with the default position), maximize, exit and
restart and it returned back to it's former un-maximized state.

The non-maximized state I have to add, is *almost* maximized, with the left
and bottom of the window flush with the left and bottom of the
screen/gnome-panels, but the top of the window about 2 pixels too low and
the right of the window about 5 pixels too far to the right.  

Incidently I have a dual monitor setup with xinerama through the nvidia
dual screen sextion of the driver, which may be causing the strangeness. 
Maybe Pan can't handle being maximized on one of two screens?

this happens on a single monitor system too.
Fedora Core 1, Pan 0.14.2

Confirmed.  This is because of this line in

    if (window->maximize_initially)
        g_snprintf (buf, sizeof(buf), "/Pan/Geometry/%s_max", key);
        pan_config_set_bool (buf, TRUE);

gtk doesn't set GtkWindow.maximize_initially when a window is maximized.
