Wont start maximised

Bug Description

Update manager will not start maximised.

I've got the compiz Windows Placement plug-in set to maximise all windows but no luck. If not maximised on last close it remembers its last position - very unhelpful - I'd rather it obeyed the Windows Placement plug-in. If maximised on last close it next opens as a floating window, but full-screen-size with a bit hanging off-screen to make room for the title bar at the top.

I've noticed another app, Skype, does the same - it remembers it's last window position, but wont start maximised. Other apps, e.g. Firefox, Thunderbird, Nautilus appear unaffected.

I'm sure this wasn't a problem before upgrading from 11.10.

I have a similar problem, but not just update-manager. TeXMaker also starts in a "maximized size", but offset to account for the unity launcher and top bar. It may also be some other programs, but that's the one I use the most so I can't confirm if thats an exhaustive list.

In 11.10, the programs opened maximized everytime, no problems.
