Padre always starts in minimized window

I am running Padre v0.28 on Vista 32bits.
Whether I click on the padre icon or type "Padre" in the run box, the application always starts in a minimized window. I have to right-click and select Maximize, clicking on the tab would not automatically maximize the window.

This is not a Padre issue I think.
Padre starts maximized when launched from a DOS command line.

Here's the workaround I figured out to launch Padre maximized by default from a link:
select "Maximized" in the Execute drop list that you can choose when right-clicking on the link and selecting "Properties".

All the other programs that I launch from the desktop have the "Execute"->normal window option, so it's possible that there is something not right still...
