18, as expected (minimum width is 2 columns).

I certainly think so.  If GetClientRect fails, how does it make sense
to use what we find in the rectangle data structure we passed to it?
The values there are just garbage.

I have no idea, perhaps because we already made the frame visible, but
the window manager didn't yet have time to actually do so.  The fact
is we do get all-zero rectangle, I've seen that in the debugger.

I don't suggest such changes for other platforms, only for w32.

The rest of the changes won't get propagated because the relevant code
in change_frame_size_1 is gone on the trunk.

No, I didn't have a trunk binary on that machine.  But if the
validation of the frame dimensions on the tyrunk doesn't suffer from
this problem, the bug shouldn't happen.

Btw, the problem has nothing to do with my .emacs.desktop: the call to
w32_read_socket was from the loop where we wait for the frame to
become visible.  It can happen at any time with any desktop file that
re-creates more than one frame.
