Not a big issue re: Xresources ... but ??

I have set my Xresources file as below:

! start emacs with scroll bar on right side
Emacs.Geometry: 80x65+96+32
Emacs.verticleScrollBars: right

It does the job.  But Emacs always starts with a different position size
and with the scrollbar on the left.  That lasts for a fraction of a
second, just long enough for me to see that it is some default
configuration then flashes to the Xresources setup.  It looks a little
hacky; I can live with that.


Shouldn't there be some way to setup Emacs so that it opens in the
desired configuration cleanly and smoothly without first creating some
default view?

I am using a slightly older machine -- new 5 years ago -- with a P4 1.3
CPU and 640MB Ram.  It is at the low end for today, but should be fast
enough to draw Emacs instantly.

Dare I change this ?
Is there some default instructions in an earlier loading file (*.el)
that I can remove?  Or, change?

As the subject line says, this not a big issue for me but it would be
nice if it worked smoothly -- just cleaning up items on my to-do list.

Regards Bill,
Emacs 22.0.990.1  Fedora 7
