What version of Emacs did you install, and from which site did you
download the binary distribution?

Also, how do you start Emacs, exactly?  Do you have any customizations
on your .emacs init file?  What happens if you invoke "emacs -Q"?

If you type "M-: (frame-height) RET" and "M-: (frame-width) RET", what
does Emacs display in the echo area (the last line of its window)?

The default size should be small enough to produce a window that is
fully visible.  Here I get a 36x80 window.
