Is your problem, in practice, only with those weirdo frames that have
their tool bars and/or menu bars wrapped?  Or do you have problems
with the more "dull" use cases as well?

If the latter, can you describe the unsolved problem(s) you have in
that case?

People who wrap menus deserve that.

It's not complex.  AFAIK, "(make-frame '((height . N)))" creates a
frame whose "(frame-height)" returns N plus the value returned by
tool-bar-lines-needed.  I expect the same to be true on X, with the
exception of a GTK build, where we might need to do something special.

Does this solve the problem with visible frames?  If not, what is
