KDE Window Position & Size


I'm not really a Newbie, but it's years ago I lastly used KDE (version 1.x ). Now I'm using KDE 3.5 for several weeks and one thing really annoys me: there are a lot of programs that don't remember their last window position and/or size. They always default to a specific location/size when I close and open them again. I give you some examples:

Program that doesn't remember anything:
- Konqueror

Program that remembers window size, but not position:
- KMail

Nice Program that remembers everything:
- Basket Note Pads

Is there a way to tell these programs to remember their position/size?

And a second question about konqueror: Can I tell konqueror to remember the view mode? I prefer MultiColumn view, but it always defaults to Icon view.

I believe those are determined by the program itself. In the case of Adobe Reader, the information is held in the document.
