What are the -g specifications?

This is to be expected (see Bug#25851 for further details) and should
have been solved for Emacs 26.

I have no idea what kind of "inconsistency" fvwm means here.  It is
possible that 18 * 84 which gives 1512 pixels + 400 which gives 1912
pixels is too high for your screen.

Anyway, it seems that Emacs 25 while coming up with the intended
position/size does not behave correctly either.  Let's do away with
-g and resources for the moment and try starting Emacs as follows:

emacs -Q --eval "(setq initial-frame-alist '((width . 41) (height . 84) (left . 400) 
(top . 400)))"

Do Emacs 25 and Emacs 26 behave differently and are there any
warnings?

Thanks, martin
