I think this may be devilspie.  I removed it, because it made
everything start in fullscreen mode, and go spontaneously into
fullscreen mode whenever selected.

You can try removing it, if you don;t need its features; or trying to
configure it if you do.

Thanks Peter, but devilspie isn't installed...
