Bug Description

This hack required for using Qbzr on Slackware Linux with WindowMaker windows manager when windows titles are disabled. Qt is incorrectly detect the size of the qdiff window and maximized flag, and always reset those data to some defaults. With the change below it's possible to avoid this effect.

Actually even self.resize is not needed.

The best way for us to workaround this problem with weird window managers is to introduce special config option to avoid save/restore the size and allow the user to force some size for all q-windows.
