I think it must be guaranteed that the window fits on the screen, what ever 
the physical dimension is. I remember a bug in KDE and TDE up to 3.5.12 that 
did not allow users to make the contents of the kcontrol window smaller than 
1024px, when the user ever enlarged the window >= 1024px including 
decoration. that was especially anoying on screens with 1024px width, where 
maximizing kcontrol triggerd that behaviour. Next time you start kcontrol it 
was wider than zthe screen and did not want to shrink.
