[R] Running Rgui.exe as "normal" window

I'm running R 1.5.1 under Windows XP Pro.  I haven't paid too much 
attention to the way R starts up until now.  I've noticed that on all my 
Windows XP systems, Rgui.exe starts "maximized" despite having the shortcut 
properties set for it to run in a "normal" window.  I've tried resizing the 
windows (I use MDI sessions) and then saving the workspace, but the window 
sizing isn't persistent between sessions.

I don't see this behavior on my Windows 2000 systems and so I'm wondering 
whether this is a minor incompatibility between R 1.5.1 and Windows XP, or 
whether there is some other tweak needed to get the window sizes to 
persist.  (I suppose I could mess with the screen geometry, but I haven't 
needed to do this on any previous Windows OS).
