Mail Merge window in stardard size

Problem description: 

When working with the mailmerge window, this window cannot remember its previous size. It falls back to a default size. This is extremely uncomfortable when working with multiple queries.

Steps to reproduce:
1. write a letter with mail merge functions
2. go to file - print, answer the dialogue with "yes" (do you want to print a form letter?)
3. the windows which opens now is the mail merge window

Current behavior:
The window always opens in default size, so I cannot see all of my queries.

Expected behavior:
The window should remember its size, when it has been opened and resized before.

Platform (if different from the browser): 
Linux (Debian testing), 
LibreOffice 3.4.5 
OOO340m1 (Build:502)
              
Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:11.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/11.0

Thanks for bugreport
May be resize functionality added recently and not completely finished.

Where is more handy to hold window size: in document (each document hold it's own windows size) or in LibreOffice profile (on size for all documents)?

Hello Sasha,

I think it would be better to hold it in LibreOffice profile but with the option that the user is able to change the size. If this is not possible (or too difficult) I would take the other solution.

Anyway, most important is to integrate the functionality, not so important where :-)

Thanks for your work.
