The command-line section of the Emacs info pages says that WIDTH and
HEIGHT are supposed to apply to *all* frames. Current behavior is that
it only applies to the first, third, fifth, etc. but not second,
fourth, etc. frames:


     Specify the size WIDTH and HEIGHT (measured in character columns
     and lines), and positions XOFFSET and YOFFSET (measured in
     pixels). The WIDTH and HEIGHT parameters apply to all frames,
     whereas XOFFSET and YOFFSET only to the initial frame.

To reproduce:

My .Xdefaults contains:
Emacs.Geometry:       125x50-5+50

Using an Oct 16, 2006 CVS snapshot and gnu/linux local compile:

% emacs -Q -g 100x38 &
brings up the first frame


C-x 5 b 
brings up the 2nd frame that's much bigger (no longer fitting in my VNC

C-x b *scratch*
(frame-height)52 (Hmm, that's *bigger* than the 50 in my .Xdefaults.
                  Is the vertical delta due to my fvwm2 titlebar width?)

default-frame-alist is a variable defined in `C source code'.
((tool-bar-lines . 1)
 (menu-bar-lines . 1)
 (width . 125)
 (height . 50)
 (user-size . t)
 (height . 38)
 (width . 100))

If I open up a third frame:
C-x 5 b 
This one is now the right size!

C-x b *scratch*

Similarly, a fourth frame looks like the second (over-large).
