Comment 21 for bug 124315

This is not the job of the window manager, it must be fixed in the applications themselves.

It is also my opinion that saving of windows position and state (maximized/restored) should be detailed in the gnome HIG. This way developers will be more obliged to fix it. Because currently reporting this to devs it will get a low priority, even wishlist. Which in my opinion is ridiculous, as this is a very important and basic feature.

How would you like it if your computer was randomly hidden somewhere in your apartment every day when you woke up? You'd be furious after a week or two. This needs to get into the HIG!
