   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).

Does it work without -Q (and with an empty ~/.emacs file)?

The handling of -Q has changed in v23.2 (see NEWS), so perhaps this
bug is a side effect.

In any case, a proper way of reporting a bug in a pretest is with
"M-x report-emacs-bug RET".

Eli,

Thanks for the suggestion.  I'll experiment with/without -Q.  If this
doesn't appear to be user error, then I will file a bug report.

Steve
