This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:


I decided the tool bar didn't add any value for me, as a long-time Emacs
user, so I tried to reclaim the space by adding this to ~/.emacs:

  (tool-bar-mode -1)

This removed the tool bar, but it didn't reclaim my space; instead my
window shrunk by the number of lines the toolbar replaced.  I guess
there are arguments on both sides of this one, but I find it
disconcerting to have to specify my window geometry 2 lines larger than
I actually want the window to be, so that when the toolbar is removed it
will come out correctly.  This means I must set my geometry to 80x72,
for example, to get an 80x70 window after the toolbar is removed.

Also, this is annoying since the number of lines the toolbar takes up
depends directly on the size of your font, so if I change fonts I may
well have to change the amount of offset.
