Reopening this bug report ticket since I am still experiencing it on 1.7.0
Original report follows:----
This was found on QGIS 1.4, from the ubuntugis-unstable repo and Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic (I couldn't set Ubuntu as platform in the ticket properties):
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new Qgis project and add some layers to it.
2. Create a print composer an add some items to it.
3. Save the project and close.
4. Open the project again. An empty composed window opens on top.
This window can't be closed but can be minimized or sent to bottom. QGis is still usable and on opening the saved composer it replaces the empty window.
If multiple composers were defined they all open as blank canvases.

- Resolution set to fixed
- Status changed from Open to Closed
This was somehow already fixed.
I've tested it on qgis-trunk and it behaves as expected. If closing a saved project that has a composer open, then when opening the project the composer window will pop-up and the map objects are just preview->rectangle state.

Giovanni, I was the one opening this ticket for the first time in the old tracker. I don't know what exactly was causing it but it seems to be very infrequent and specific to user configuration so it is difficult to replicate.
This was not really fixed but vanished when I updated no natty (but it was a natty thing not a qgis one) and then closed since I could not replicate it anymore.
