Hi 12.04 users,

I am new to Ubuntu, working with lightdm.

I like using multiple workspaces, but i don't like the
desktop maximization of any app in a new window when i switch to it.

eg, i open a terminal app, position it to fit a low, less then full screen
i switch to a different workspace & upon my return terminal is full size!

(worse, i dont know how to unmaximize at that point)

i size position windows where i want them and resent this lightdm's attempt
to 'help'!

any way to disable the behaviour?

TIA, jackc...
