Just another quick hunch, instead of selecting the Window Behavior option, select the Window-Specific Settings option. This is where you save and store window specific options such as window size and placement. If you have anything listed then explore the options to see if that might be the cause.
You create these settings from the GUI by right-clicking on the title bar of a window, then select the Advanced pop-up menu option, then selecting Special Window Settings.
I've seen this help with oddball KDE problems too. Occasionally the DCOP thingy stops working and the only way to resolve that problem is to log out and log in. If I started X/KDE from KDM then that means ending the session and logging back in from KDM. If I started X/KDE from startx then that means ending the X session and restarting X/KDE with startx. With the latter I do not need to actually log out and log in.
Regarding the original problem, I have no more suggestions. I wish I did!
statguy found the right answer for me. It had been a long time since I logged out of KDE. When I exited and restarted X-Windows, the problems went away. Thank you, statguy and all the others who offered help.
