Window sizes when changing resolution

I don't know, maybe it's a bug, maybe some misconfiguration but I have
a question is it possible to fix this problem:
I am using TDE, Debian Wheezy, running on Dell D430
subnotebook. This small computer has 1280x800 LCD, Intel GMA chipset.
At home I'm docking my Dell and redirecting video using xrandr to
external monitors: two 1600x1200 displays connected to dock's ports.
The desktop is split on 2 monitors, the system menu/task bar is shown
only in the left one, exactly as I want.
The problem begins when I hibernate computer undocked and
unhibernate it in a dock. It of course still shows picture on internal
LCD, so I have a script with xrandr to set proper resolutions and
After changing resolutions and displays, Most of resizeable windows on
screen become one screen (1600 pixels) wide.
In this situation, the next one happens relatively rare: Konqueror's
window sometimes have decoration placed higher than screen, so it
can be moved or closed only from task bar menu.
Is there any option in configuration to prevent this window expanding
when resolution is changed?
Shrinking works and is OK (it must be for reverse situation - undocking).
