Thank you for your report.

This is not really a bug: it's hard to know what the user means when
she customizes Emacs like you did.  Does she want the same overall
geometry of the frame as before disabling the tool bar, or does she
want the same dimensions of the text area?

The unpleasant resize of the frame you observe is the consequence of
the fact that the initial frame is created before your .emacs is
processed.  (It's hard not to do that, since most Emacs functions
will not work without a live frame.)

If you want the former, the best way currently is to specify that in
your ~/.Xdefaults or some similar X resource.

Well, the previous versions didn't have the tool bar at all ;-)
