From: Markus Triska
Subject: bug#33921: 27.0.50; Default height is inconsistently - and apparently also incorrectly - documented

In the Emacs man page, we find for the "-g" (--geometry) option:

    The width and height are specified in characters; the default is
    80 by 24.

In the Emacs info page ("C.8 Options for Window Size and Position"), we
find a different default height:

   The default frame width is 80 characters and the default height is
   40 lines.

However, when I start Emacs via "$ emacs -Q", I actually get a height
that is neither 24 nor 40, no matter how I count it: On a recent Debian
install with X toolkit, I get an initial window that comprises exactly
28 lines, and if I include the mode line and echo area, then the frame
height is 30, excluding the tool bar, menu bar and title bar.
