Sounds very over-complicated to me.  Using a WindowID is bad here, not
necessarily because it's only per-window, but for the fact that when FVWM
restarts, the inherent use of WindowStyle to set the style of the window
means it's lost on a restart.

When FVWM restarts, its windows are reparented to the root window, and then
reparented when FVWM starts again; in your case, the maximized state is
recorded for windows across restarts, but FVWM doesn't record the state of
all states across restarts for WindowStyle'd windows.

It seems to me like you're reinventing a session manager here anyway;
something I don't want to pedal as good advice anyway.

Then something about the window when it is recaptured is causing another
style to match this window, most likely.
