Geometry ignored in Emacs 23.1.91 on OpenSUSE 11.2

I've been trying out Emacs 23.1.91 on OpenSUSE 11.2.  Emacs' version
string is

  GNU Emacs 23.1.91.1 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.18.1) of 2009-12-31

I've run into one problem that I can't seem to work around: emacs
doesn't seem to pay attention to certain elements on the geometry
specification.  For example

  emacs -Q --geometry 99x40-0-0

Creates a frame with a width of 99, but a height of 25 (not 40).  The
frame is positioned against the left edge of the screen, but the top
edge of the frame seems to be consistely positioned 225 pixels from
the top edge of the screen (and not -0).  It's almost as if

   --geometry WxH+X+Y

becomes translated to --geometry Wx25+X+225.

I've also observed this with 23.1.90, but not with the emacs-23.1.1
that comes with OpenSUSE 11.2.

When building emacs, --prefix= is the only argument I gave to
./configure.  Is there a ./configure option that I missed?
