gdb log attached.
Note: 'f' was not available inside Fset_frame_size (due to
optimization perhaps),
so I got the info inside x_set_window_size() instead.

My recipe:
- set aside .emacs (I have no .Xresources)
- run emacs (-> gets me an 80x37 frame)
- run emacs --geometry 132x60 ( gets me an 132x57 frame)
  => these are explained by menu/toolbars, if I disable those, X reports the
       window as 132x60; while this bothers me a little, if it just means I have
       to ask for 132x63, that would be fine I guess
- customize-face default, set font to terminus (foundry xos4), and height to 135
- run emacs --geometry 132x60
  -> erratic results

Checking now, it looks like it's the terminus font causing the current troubles,
a few other fonts I've checked (e.g. adobe courier) seem to end up at 132x57
This puzzles me, as I am sure I originally reproduced it by changing only the
font height and keeping the font itself unchanged.
I'm also getting max-specpdl-size exceeded on C-x 5 2, so I cannot check the
previously observed behaviour that even when the initial frame is erratically
sized, subsequent frames are fine.
