I tried it with one terminal window at the standard 80x24 and another that was rezized to 80x35. The 80x24 window maximized and the 80x35 window returned to the default of 80x24. Option-clicking again returned the windows to their previous state. Cute.

Option-clicking the minimize button minimized both indows to the dock. But oddly, option clicking the minimized dock windows did not do anything.

It's normal behaviour. There is two states: the standard one, and the user's one.

When you click the maximize button, it toggles between standard state and user's state. The standard state corresponds to default size: for example, 80 x 24 in Terminal (or whichever size you define as default in Terminal preferences). The user's state corresponds to the last size you defined either by resizing the window with the button at the bottom right corner or by clicking the maximize button (either the program defines a maximum size which can be adjusted by the system, or it lets the system define it, both taking into account the screen's size, the menu bar's size and the dock's size).

Then, if you are in the standard state (say 80 x 24), clicking the maximize button makes the window enter in user's state (say 120 x 35). If you are in the user's state (120 x 35), the window enters in standard's state (80 x 24).
