Installed now for Emacs 25.2.

With 40 lines though.  What did you expect?

With "consequent invocations" you mean what?  C-x 5 2 here creates yet
another frame of the same size.  The size of the initial frame is
derived from the ‘height’ and ‘width’ frame parameters, if specified,
and the height of the default font.

No ideas about this one.

gtk_distribute_natural_allocation is a pain.  You could try to set
‘frame-resize-pixelwise’ to t but I doubt that it will help.

The Windows API has no idea of window sizes based on the metrics of some
default font.  The "round frame sizes to multiples of the default font
height" paradigm is among the most irksome legacies the Emacs frame code
has to deal with.
