$ emacs --no-site-file -q --eval '(tool-bar-mode 0)' -geometry 10x10   
gives me a 10x7 window while
$ emacs --no-site-file -q -geometry 10x10
gives me a 10x10 window.  Given that the user asked for a 10x10
window, he should be given it.

All I know is I did
debian_$ man emacs
and it said on there

       Richard Stallman encourages you to improve and extend Emacs

and I thought it also applied to the man pages that came with it.

by "note" I meant "please notate", "please add a notation"
