KDE 3.3). Thus I had quite a few of these settings. Fortunately, in the
Control Center the settings that were carried forward to KDE 3.3 are all
flagged with the string " (KDE3.2)" so they're easy to identify and
either fix or discard and re-create.

application window was being confined to the size of the OpenOffice.org
splash window! Eradicating the carry-over Window-Specific settings from
the Control Center freed OOo from this left-over and allowed me to
re-create new settings that reflected the variety of windows in
