How to avoid setting the desktop window's size.

I've been looking at debian bug
which basically resolves to

So, the solution would be to either 

1. Not save the desktop window's size in the session,
2. Not save any state at all for that window,
3. Not restore desktop window's size on session load, or
4. Not restore any state at all for a desktop window.

I have identified the places in the code for each of them and can
produce a patch, but I don't know which approach is best. Any
suggestions? I lean to not saving any state at all, but wonder if it
can cause problems.

PS. The bug is not in sawfish's bugzilla. I'll add it there for
documentation, but I'll do it when I have the patch and post it
