Kubuntu 12.04 standard install, kernel is 3.2.0-34-generic.
- I launch an application (specific application is irrelevant as this issue occurs with all of them).
- I maximize the window, or move it to a specific location on the screen.
- I close the application.
- The next time I launch the app, the window is back at its original size and location.
If any further information is required.
