The problem is due to the fact that there is no standard way to do it
in gnome and every application does it its own way.

ggv, for instance, is one of the applications that checks the size of
the screen (the first versions did not) so the windows are not bigger,
and it also has an option that allows the user to 'remember' the
geometry of the window for future sessions (as a "preference", because
it is not the default behaviour).

To check for the maximum size of the screen is not difficult when
creating the windows (i think this can be done inside the libraries,
which the only consequence of what to do if the user _really_ wants a
bigger on :)

The option to save the geometry is a more difficult one, that might
have to be handled on a per-application basis..
