I bet it is us users with (tool-bar-mode 0) in .emacs that feel the
silliest about this calculation.  Can please
1. --geometry be evaluated _after_ the tool-bar-mode, or
2. prominent words be added to the emacs man page -geometry section
warning that if one dabbles with tool-bar-mode 0, one must rethink his
-geometry wishes.  Also add this to emacs --help output.
By the way, on the man page don't you want to write --geometry etc. instead
of -geometry, at least judging from the emphasis "--" is given on the
--help output.  Yes, both work (do mention that) but we want to
promote "--".

Also note --geometry vs tool-bar-mode in the tool-bar-mode docstrings.

Anyways, all I know is the size reported by alt f8 in icewm ... 

OK, so I've got it all upside down, whatever.

All I wanted to do was have a "fullsize" emacs created from my
.xsession file.

Why may I ask does
$ emacs #from the shell
give me one
whilst
emacs & in .xsession
give me one that is 3 lines shorter.  Yes my xrdb line comes first.
