This won't affect the OS X/Aqua version of Emacs, as Aqua does not
read any of the X11 config files.  The Carbon version of Emacs does
open with part of the window off the bottom of the screen on my
computer, and always has.  Other Carbon and Cocoa apps have the same
problem.  ISTR that there is an algorythm to make the app aware of the
display size, but many programmers do not use it.  Changing the
resolution of the display to a higher resolution is the only user-end
fix for this AFAIK.  Unfortunately my middle aged eyes don't like
this.

As as aside, whoever used '=' as a quote string, Emacs can't format
this correctly with the M-q command.  Please use a standard quote
string so that people don't have to fix your posts by hand to respond
to them.
