On my 800x480 eeepc,
$ emacs -Q
ALT+F8 says the window is 21 lines high.
Since the minibuffer is below the screen, in the scratch buffer, type
(tool-bar-mode)C-x C-e
The tool bar dissapears, ALT+F8 still reports the screen is 21 lines long,
but finally all fits.
Is this an icewm bug, reporting the same size with or without toolbar?
Wait, it is counting screen lines, not pixels...

Depending on which Emacs version (Gtk+, Lucid, ...) the tool bar may or may not be counted in the lines available for editing, that is what the window manager reports.

$ emacs -Q --eval '(tool-bar-mode)' #gives a window too short. ALT+F8
says it is 19 lines high.

Too short for what? How tall the initial frame becomes when no height has been specified is undefined, i.e. it can be anything.
