This fact is not documented on the emacs man page.

One finds that in emacs --help, but not on the man page. Same with
--maximized.

Well, the man page do say:
       The primary documentation of GNU Emacs is  in  the  GNU  Emacs Manual,
       which  you  can  read  using Info, either from Emacs or as a standalone
       program.  Please look there for complete and up-to-date  documentation.
       This  man  page  is  updated only when someone volunteers to do so; the
       Emacs maintainers' priority goal is to minimize the amount of time this
       man page takes away from other more useful projects.

You are free to update it if you wan't. I seems to have been updated last 2008-12-14, and the -Q and --maximized changes are earlier than that.


There are probably more such cases too.

P.S.,
$ cat ~/bin/emacs
emacs-snapshot -mm "$@"
#emacs-snapshot --maximized "$@"
The first line is compatible with -nw, the second causes an error!
Occasionally I use -nw and don't want an error to occur.


That was a bug, now fixed.
