For what it's worth, kwm (the KDE window manager) puts the maximize
button on every dialog that I tried, except for the new image dialog -
even dialogs that are menu tear-offs.  Maximizing the menu tearoff does
not actually maximize it though, which makes sense to me, given how most
of the other dialogs resize themselves when maximized.

Though I don't see this as being much of an issue personally, the KDE
window manager handles it as you seem to expect.
