|Subject:||bug#8212: Emacs 23.3.rc2: Frame height setting lost when entire frame dragged around on screen|

Ah, Windows "Snap", yes. Thanks:
Notepad has the same behavior, so Emacs is behaving just like notepad, and the above link indicates this behavior is engineered into snap.
I agree that dragging the top or bottom Emacs frame edge to a screen border is very convenient to obtain a full height Emacs frame.
However, I just turned off "snap" on my system because the "snap" behavior described in this not-a-bug report is awful.
Maybe it's just me, but when I attempt to move an Emacs frame horizontally and observe my frame dramatically shrink and all windows therein repositioned irreversibly it flusters me. I would recommend the "snap" messages to extend the frame to full height be accepted by Emacs, and the "snap" messages to reset be ignored by Emacs, if that is even remotely possible.
