KWin/compositing/window management

  • When the compositor crashes or restarts, all apps are killed
  • Windows that were closed when maximized will open in the maximized position, but not the maximized state:

Example: KNotifications' KStatusNotifierItem in KStatusNotifierItemPrivate::checkVisibility(...), invoked e.g. on clicking the item, uses the info to decide client-side whether to request showing the window again (or hide it)
