bug#18001: default behavior changes

Thanks for the clarification. But my experience doesn't quite fit with your
explanation in graphical mode. That was the crux of the problem. In
graphical mode I could not resize the emacs display by resizing the window.
It stayed fixed width and at times would not display at all under certain
window sizes.

Using -nw, which according to the docs is not using "graphical mode" results
in the display behavior you describe for "text-terminal".

I'm afraid your report makes little sense to me.

What version of Emacs is this? (The latest is 24.3.) Are you running it in a
text-terminal, or in graphical mode?

Either way, I don't understand.

In a text-terminal, Emacs uses whatever the terminal width is.
It is as far as I know impossible for it to somehow be "less wide" than the

In graphical mode, you can make the width whatever you like by resizing it
in the usual way.
