Applications open minimized in KDE Plasma in Slack 14.2 distro

After opening minimized, attempts to maximize result in shifting of
window offscreen to the right. Cannot make the window appear full
screen in the desktop environment.

Video card is Sapphire 100287L Radeon HD5670 512MB PCI Express
2.0 x16 which caused a problem in Slack 13.37 but was remedied by removing all
ATI Radeon drivers not just blacklisting. 14.2's seems
to have corrected the problem and I have no trouble with this video card
except for the KDE desktop.

Am I missing something in Xorg, a hardware problem or simply a KDE problem?
Would appreciate any suggestions!

All applications do this or just some?

I had a similar issue with a handful of applications which I would typically use on a second monitor, then when that monitor was absent sometimes KDE's "Smart" window placement would try to put them there anyway. I solved it by going to System Settings -> Window Behavior -> Window Behavior, "Advanced" tab and setting "Placement" to anything other than "Smart" for a while, then switching back.

Changed from 'Smart' to 'Maximized'; so far, so good.

Will start KDE later to see if it is still working properly.
Fingers crossed!

Thanks for the suggestion.
