Yes, setResizable(false) only prevents dragging the border, not maximizing the frame (a bug, I suppose).  One rather ugly, but workable, solution is to extend Frame with the following addition:

public void layout()
{
  resize(frameWidth,frameHeight);
  super.layout();
}

where frameWidth and frameHeight are the desired width and height of the Frame.  The layout() method gets called when the user maximizes the window, and then you set its size back to what you wanted.  The only problem with this solution is that it allows the Frame to be maximized, and then sets it back to normal.  Until setResizeable() works correctly, this is unavoidable.
