How to prevent KDE4 applications to start in fullscreen mode on Fedora 11 with Compiz Fusion.

I am experiencing problems with most of my KDE4 applications installed in my Fedora 11 box. I've recently installed digikam, konqueror, konversation, ktorrent etc. and everytime I open each of these applications, its always opening in full screen mode.
