BTW NS on OSX is 50/80 for both cases, so the GNUStep value 49/50 is probably 
GNUStep specific, I'll check that.

This has been inconsistent historically, i.e. Lucid/Motif/No toolkit counts 
differently than Gtk/NS.
I think the Gtk count makes more sense.  If a user requests 50 lines he 
probably means 50 editable lines, not 47.  So I think we should not count tool 
bar or menu bar.
The documentation says
"The height of the frame contents, in characters."
I don't think menu and tool bar is content.

This may break some lisp code that counts lines and does it differently for the 
two cases.  I don't know if there are any such code though.

BTW what values does the frame parameter height have now that pixelwise resize 
may show partial lines?  A floating point value?
