OK, so evidently tmux reduces the screen dimensions _before_ Emacs
starts, in which case yes, the 1-off difference is probably due to
that factor, and shouldn't be causing any trouble.

So perhaps the problem is that Emacs takes the screen dimensions only
at startup and when it gets the SIGWINCH signal, and tmux somehow
makes these changes without sending SIGWINCH?
