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).
