And yet even now, after half a dozen exchanges, neither you nor we
understand why the problem happened to you, why you couldn't resize a
graphics frame.

It is unfortunate that so many messages have come and gone without any
real understanding of your problem.  Perhaps it would have helped if
you answered our questions.

Going to -nw is _not_ the answer.  GUI frames _can_ be resized, I do
that every day.  Their initial size _can_ be controlled, both from the
command-line arguments you use to invoke Emacs, and from your ~/.emacs
init file.

The text-mode sessions are still widely used and are completely
covered in the documentation.

Evidently, something _is_ broke on your system, or in how you
invoke/use Emacs.
