With "emacs -Q", this is the intended behavior: the latest changes let
the system locate the Emacs frame.  The original cause for the change
was to avoid locating the Emacs frame in the portions of the screen
occupied by the task bar and other decorations.

Setting the geometry in the default-frame-alist should work.  However,
you should be able to set the geometry in the registry as well.
Please provide the details--what are your settings in the registry,
when did you last resync with the CVS, and how to reproduce the
problem with "emacs -Q".
