Kubuntu 12.04 standard install, kernel is 3.2.0-34-generic.

  1. I launch an application (specific application is irrelevant as this issue occurs with all of them).
  2. I maximize the window, or move it to a specific location on the screen.
  3. I close the application.
  4. The next time I launch the app, the window is back at its original size and location.

If any further information is required.

Specific application is important, actually. This is something applications have to deal with themselves, generally, and most don't.
