tool-bar-mode in .emacs shrinks window

with Emacs 21.2 (and 21.1 I believe as well) I have today analyzed the 
following sizing misbehaviour:

In my .emacs I have

(tool-bar-mode -1)

This causes Emacs to get properly drawn, but just after it gets round to 
putting the final touches -- the modeline (my PC is just 500MHz so I can sit 
and watch) it shrinks the window by 2 lines.

This happens both when I supply a command line geometry, or (my usual case) 
when the sawfish window manager tells it the remembered size (in pixels).

That alone doesn't seem to explain it, the window gets drawn without a frame, 
and minimally overlapping outside the screen on all 4 sides.  On the bottom 
line it makes a difference whether it's taller than the screen or not.  On the 
right hand side it doesn't.

On a related matter:  now that Emacs can have arbitrary size characters, the 
geometry should be in pixels rather than cells -- at least optionally.
