I haven't been able to find a proper topic about this, and as such I'll just throw the idea around here (yay).
During character login most of the clients chatwindow data is stored in clientside (cached) files, and will always pop up when a character logs in (be it local, alliancechat, player channels, marketwindows, fittingwindows or any other window).
My suggestion would be to add a bitvalue on window-states when minimized, so that a window-state of "minimized" is stored clientside when logging off, thus allowing the pilot to log back in to how he/she left the client during logout.
Forcing all windows into "open" state on login makes most pilots have to resort to start minimizing windows if they have a lot of them, instead of going into direct playmode from their last 'stored' session clientside.
I know programmer-time is scarse, so as usual this is just a mere suggestion to increase 'functionality' on a clients side, while allowing players to get into action quicker (not having to minimize all their channels).
