Remote Desktop Maximizes Word Windows When I Switch Between Computers

I'm running XP Home on a hand-me-down Dell Inspiron 1100and XP Pro on a generic PC. I use Windows Remote Desktop to access the PC from the laptop.

Every time I switch between the two computers, my Word windows, which I prefer to kep in the "restored" state, end up being maximized.

Any ideas on why this happens, and how I can stop it?
