bug#24707: 25.1; Window shrinks automatically after opening at normal si

I used "git clone git://git.savannah.gnu.org/emacs.git" to clone and build
emacs which produced version 26.0.50.1. I used the following command to
configure it to get past some missing packages:

./configure --without-makeinfo --with-xpm=no --with-gif=no --with-gnutls=no

Running src/emacs -Q and src/emacs -q (shows the logo graphic) without doing
a full install both work as expected without resizing the window.

How do I fetch the 25.1 sources to try to reproduce & debug the problem with
the same version that is actually exhibiting the problem?

The second approach is IMO the right one.  I think if you put a breakpoint
in adjust_frame_size, you will see all the resizes.
