I can not test the Cygwin build, but in Emacs for Windows, what Emacs
considers a "maximized" or a "fullscreen" frame is not really a
maximized frame (window manager style, I mean). If I maximize
(wm-style) a frame and exit Emacs, when I restart it I get a frame of
the same size, but neither maximized.nor in the same exact location.

BTW, if you disable the tool bar before saving (adding (tool-bar-lines
. 0) to default-frame-alist, for example), do you see any difference?
