Bug Description

running u8 desktop session

Steps to reproduce:
- open u-s-s
- resize the window to 2 column mode
- close the app with X from window control
- restart the app

Expected results:
- u-s-s should open at the size it was last closed at

Actutual results:
- u-s-s window is smaller only showing one column

This may be related to limiting the max size which we used to have? I think we should remove all max sizing restrictions on the app, and bring back the maximize button which is not displayed either.

it works correctly for other apps which makes me think u-s-s is overriding the behavior somehow

In Desktop mode all apps open in a small square window & have to be resized per use, i.e. it doesn't 'remember' window size in a session let alone across sessions.
Makes the desktop mode onerous to use..

this is not a general unity8 bug. Window sizes are remembered correclty. It's specific to settings app and ken's branch addresses it.
