In fact, now -Q is equivalent to -q --no-site-file --no-splash, plus
ignoring X resources. From etc/NEWS:

* Startup Changes in Emacs 23.2

** Command-line option -Q (--quick) now also disables loading X resources.
Note however that this does not affect Lucid or Motif widgets, if you
are using those toolkits.  On Windows, this option causes Emacs to
ignore Registry settings, though environment variables set on the
Registry are still honored.

This is likely related to your problem.
