This is a piece of bug #117, which describes several problems with
frame parameters.

This is the bug that, even when `default-frame-alist' specifies no
fringe, the initial frame has fringe. I'm creating a new bug
report for this small piece of 117, to simplify things.
Save the code below to a file named `bug-117-fringe.el", then do this:
runemacs.exe -Q --debug-init -l "bug-117-fringe.el" -f "foo"
(defun foo ()
  (setq default-frame-alist
        (append '((minibuffer)
                  (left-fringe . 0)
                  (right-fringe . 0))
  (setq minibuffer-frame-alist
        (append '((minibuffer . only))
(add-hook 'after-make-frame-functions
          (lambda (fr) (set-frame-size fr 60 20)))
This code works in Emacs 20 through 22. In Emacs 23, the first,
non-minibuffer frame has both left and right fringe, in spite of the
value of `default-frame-alist'. Note that without the call to
`set-frame-size' in `after-make-frame-functions' the problem does not
The Elisp manual, node Initial Parameters, says this about
"This is an alist specifying default values of frame parameters for
 all Emacs frames--the first frame, and subsequent frames.  When
 using the X Window System, you can get the same results by means
 of X resources in many cases."
NB: "the first frame, and..."

I don't know what has to be done in w32fns.c to make this work.

Thanks for finding this. It seems the appropriate change was made to w32fns.c on 2008-07-14, from memory it fixed part of the problem Drew had reported.


I am marking bug#117 as done, since the original bug reported seems to be gone now. There are however several other bugs mentioned later in the thread, which should have their own bug reports (I know at least some of them do, for example bug#119 is mentioned a couple of times, in one case referencing the report). If any bugs mentioned there still exist after this fix has been applied and do not have an open bug report of their own already, please file a separate report for them.
