I am not at the 2560x1600 screen.  But I tried (left . 1) anyway.  It is
still about 1/8 inch from flush-left.  I tried (on this 1680x1050
monitor) (left -1300) and tried (left . -500) both gave flush left.

1. (user-position . t) is needed to get flush left immediately.
   The manual is clear on this if you know to look at user-position.

2. (left . 0) is not quite flush left even with user-position.
   Same for (left . 1).  Perhaps the window manager is causing this.

3. (The weird part) without user-position (left -1300) is not close to
   flush left when executed once but is flush left if repeated.  Its as
   though the second time it carries the force of user-position despite
   user-position not having ever been specified on this fresh emacs -Q.

I tried those before I knew about (i.e., you told me about)
user-position and I still could not get flush left.  I will try again
with (user-position . t).

Thanks again,
