(I'm going through old bug reports that have unfortunately gotten no
responses yet.)

I haven't looked at the low-level values passed here, but eval-ing that
form seems to do what you'd expect -- opening a frame at 100x100 (in
Emacs 27, at least).

Has this started working again, or if not -- do you have a recipe that
will display the bug?
