Well, the window is not opening Maximized anymore, but it *is*
opening "as big as it can get", and not remembering the last window
shape and size.

I do not think that this is necessarily a metacity issue, because
Firefox 1.5.dfsg+ and Pan both remember their
window sizes.

Also, the issue only occurred after I installed Evo 2.6.0-2.  At
the same time, I upgraded many other packages, and can attach a
list of upgraded packages (along with previous versions).
