The documentation for temp-buffer-max-height seems to suggest that you
should call (temp-buffer-max-height 1) to ensure that
temp-buffer-max-height is effective.

If it's a function to call i can't find it, for the variable with the
same name, i've tried to set it both as a fixed or a variable value
(2/3 of the current frame, as i've found a suggestion somewhere).

If you mean the "temp-buffer-resize-mode" variable, then is set to
true. I thought about a bug because this happens only when i pass a
geometry option, via command line or ~/.Xdefaults, but it's not a big
deal, i let the ini files resizing the frame and i'm done with it...

It's a function:

,----[ C-h f temp-buffer-resize-mode RET ]
| temp-buffer-resize-mode is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `help.el'.
| (temp-buffer-resize-mode &optional arg)
|
| Toggle the mode which makes windows smaller for temporary buffers.
| With prefix argument arg, turn the resizing of windows displaying temporary
| buffers on if arg is positive or off otherwise.
| This makes the window the right height for its contents, but never
| more than `temp-buffer-max-height' nor less than `window-min-height'.
| This applies to `help', `apropos' and `completion' buffers, and some others.
