I don't understand - was it Robert's problem that he wanted to save the
Emacs desktop with a maximized frame?  I only thought that _after
restoring_ the desktop, maximizing the frame didn't restore minibuffer
and title line.

So unless Robert says that this is the problem let's skip (1).

Robert please try here both variants with and without -Q so we can see
whether something in your .emacs has any impact.

Thanks.  This is what I had in mind with "deferring loading the desktop
file until you have seen your initial frame".

If we can repeat the problem this way, we can use the debugger.
