I have tried --no-site-file -q and found the same behavior.

C-x - is a binding I'll try to remember.

C-x ^ is definitely not fast enough.  C-- has the advantage of firing
reapeatedly when kept pressed.  I think that's is a must for things
that need quick adjustments like the size of a window.  Of course I
could always bind another key for that.  I'm just asking if there is
any way to make it work as it is.

Plus ^ is a dead key on a french-canadian keymap so it's kind of
annoying to produce. I tend to keep away from bindings that use ^ and
I'm not about to change keymap.

BTW, I need to add many bindings using Ctrl work fine.  C-- and some
others don't and I don't really understand why.
