Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: kwin
$ lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 8.10
windows automatically maximize in the KDE 4.1.2/3 desktop. Minimizing is
sort of possible with resizing, but the windows do not have any
decoration then. I confirmed to run kwin and 'kwin --replace & disown'
did not help, as suggested on ubuntuforums 
Yesterday, this happened in one machine, and this morning after reboot
on my other laptop too. Both are upgraded from Hardy. On the first I
repeatedly removed the .kde folder (renamed it to .kde.old), and per
Riddel's comments on IRC, I made sure I had no funny window preferences
in kwin*rc. I had the problem with the default 4.1.2, and since my
second laptop ran 4.1.3 did not have the problem, I upgraded.
The second machine I upgraded a few weeks back already, and only started
showing the problem today, with a last reboot 4 days ago. In that time,
I installed several packages, one of which may have set some automagic
parameter, possible a dependency of 'ubuntu-mobile'?
Suggestions on how to debug this most welcome.
$ apt-cache policy kwin

But had the problem with 4.1.2 from regular intrepid too.
