It turns out that the gtk bug I was referring to was an incompatibility and was
fixed in emacs git [1]. And it also turns out that my original bug report is not
reproducible with the patch applied. However, I still think that the
buffer should
be visible in case emacs is run with the splash screen and the window is so
small that it cannot be split.
