Does anyone know what might be the cause of this?
I've got cropped characters on the bottom line of
my frames, the last line before the minibuffer.

If you mean that the last line of the bottom-most buffer shows only
the upper part of its characters, then this is normal: Emacs no longer
requires that a window show an integral number of text lines.

But the only thing I tell emacs with regard to its frame size is a size
in columns/characters, i.e.: integral values.

So when emacs decides to give me a half-line, this is a deviation from
my request, and I would consider that a bug.

You may try playing with font and frame sizes, to get this effect to a
minimum, or even eliminate it entirely.

I'm happy with 6x10, and as far as frame-size goes, what else can I do
than give it another (integral!) columns/rows param?

If you mean I have to trial-and-error through frame pixels sizes (is
this possible -- I'll have a look?), I find that a regression.

I'm sure I must be wrong on both the bug and the regression.

Thanks for your comment, Eli.
