For me, this worked (pseudocode, for simplicity's sake):

  gtk_window_get_size (&saved_size)

  gtk_window_get_position (&saved_position)

window_state_event_cb ()
  fulled = ev->new_window_state & GDK_WINDOW_STATE_FULLSCREEN ? TRUE : FALSE;
  maxed = ev->new_window_state & GDK_WINDOW_STATE_MAXIMIZED ? TRUE : FALSE;

somewhere else
  gtk_window_resize (saved_size);
  gtk_window_move (saved_position);

  if (maxed)
    gtk_window_maximize ();

Unless you have a HiDPI display, in which case there's a bug[1] filed for this.
And unless something broke in there in the last few months that i haven't noticed.
