If a maximized Smuxi window is minimized to the taskbar and then brought back up, the window is then "restored" or un-maximized and then needs to be maximized again. If Smuxi is opened from the tray notification icon this problem does not occur.

[Installer-Win32] Install GTK# 2.12.10 instead of 2.12.9

Now that Smuxi no longer loads SVG images, it can use the GTK# 2.12.10
installer which lacks SVG support. (references: #230)

With GTK# 2.12.10 the issue is fixed which un-maximized Smuxi when it was
restored from minimize. (closes: #619)

I have tried to reproduce this bug on xubuntu 11.10. Doesn't do this for me. I'm using a nightly build installed today. Minimize and maximize work like they are supposed to.

It probably only happens on Windows or Windows 7, I'm also using 0.8 because I can't find where the newer versions are.

Yes this issue is Windows specific, I believe it is a GTK+ bug in the Windows port of GTK+ but it could also be some side-effect of something in Smuxi that doesn't show up on Linux. I wonder if this can be reproduced with other GTK+ apps on Windows.

Good news, GTK# 2.12.10 is fixing this issue! Now that Smuxi is no longer using SVG, we can finally switch to the newer version, see #230
