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

I have the following statements in my .emacs file. (I'm running 21.4 I think?)
(tool-bar-mode      -1)
...


(require 'ediff)

;; Get rid of the annoying little (separate) ediff window and
;; turn it into a 3rd pane in the main emacs window.
(setq ediff-window-setup-function 'ediff-setup-windows-plain)

;; Put files side-by-side
(setq ediff-split-window-function 'split-window-horizontally)

Then do the following a the command line:

1) emacs '--eval=(ediff-files "api.c" "api.c")'

At this point emacs launches and ediff starts, but the ediff control window 
that usually appears at the bottom of the frame is missing.

If I do the following command instead (enabling the tool bar, THEN calling 
ediff) it works, but I've got that big honkin' tool bar taking up space.
2) emacs --funcall tool-bar-mode '--eval=(ediff-files "api.c" "api.c")'

If I do command (2), and then type M-x tool-bar-mode, the toolbar disappears 
and the ediff control window stays and everything is how I want it.

That prompted me to attempt a 3rd variation of the command...
3) emacs --funcall tool-bar-mode '--eval=(ediff-files "api.c" "api.c")' 
--funcall tool-bar-mode 

but command (3) ends up like command (1).   :-(
