bug#27923: 24.3; -iconic switch screws up geometry

Caveat: the testing has all been on my desktop at work, so I can't run new tests at this instant and am working from memory.

Do the flashes occur only when you load init.el or also when using the
--iconic --geometry 80x78+1180+0 switches only?

My memory is that they happen at all times when using --iconic.

emacs -Q --iconic --geometry 80x78+1180+0 --font
"-misc-fixed-bold-r-normal-*-15-*-100-100-*-*-ISO8859-1"

This works correctly, but the geometry reported by xwininfo is
79x77+100+0 (which is related to my Emacs.geometry Xrdb setting
rather than my gnuemacs.geometry).

Do you mean that both sizes are off by one - 80/79 and 78/77 ? What do

Yes, the size should be 80x78 and instead comes up as 79x77. Weird, huh?

M-: (frame-width) RET

and

M-: (frame-height)

I'll try to remember to try those tomorrow.

in such a frame give? Did you remove/comment out the resource settings? IIRC Emacs combines everything it finds and applies the last settings it
read.

When running without -Q, I used grep to remove resource settings from my master parameter file and reloaded that into X11 with xrdb.

emacs -Q --iconic --load ~/init.el

works entirely correctly with the first init.el (including correct X
placement).

emacs -Q --load ~/init.el

works entirely correctly with the second init.el.

So apart from the flashes these would be OK?

Yes. And I never would have noticed the flashes if I hadn't been testing; they're under 1/10 second and happen when I'm logging in every morning.

Also, please tell me what
your original scenario gives with the line specifying the font setting
removed from the resource file.

That one still fails.

"still" in the sense that you get the same bad width? Does removing the
font setting change _anything_ in the appearance of the frame?

Yes, the same bad width. I'll check carefully tomorrow to see whether there is any frame change.
