Okay, that matches the description of the `geometry' X resource in
(info "(emacs)Table of Resources").  The description of the --geometry
command line option, however, doesn't mention a different treatment
of initial and following frames:

,----[ (info "(emacs)Window Size X") ]
| `--geometry=WIDTHxHEIGHT[{+-}XOFFSET{+-}YOFFSET]]'
|      Specify the size WIDTH and HEIGHT (measured in character columns
|      and lines), and positions XOFFSET and YOFFSET (measured in
|      pixels).  This applies to all frames.

That's probably a documentation bug (unless the option is really
treated this way on X, which I haven't looked up).
