Obviously something in the implementation of show() is causing the
mainwindow to fill the screen, comparable to clicking the maximize box on a
Windows or Ubuntu app.

Aha. And the word "maximize" -- search for that in the index of the Qt
Assistant. It leads to the docs for the QWidget class, windowState()
method. I think you will find that somehow, I have no idea why, your window
has been maximized. Probably a call to setWindowState() before? or after
show() will fix it.
