Just found out that the second problem depends on the max resize
request send from KWin. Im my test case this is 1680x975 but
emacs with gtk response with 1672x962 which seems to leave the
KWin in the state `not maximized' which leads on the next press
on the min/max button to a further maximize.

How this problem can be solved?  This problem does not happen
without gtk but X standard toolkit.  The later seems to add
the remaining pixel to the internal border width/height.
