It might be the fault of your WM, for example I have this in

[app] (name=emacs) (class=Emacs)
  [Deco]        {NONE}
  [Maximized]   {yes}

Can you also start Emacs with -q?  Do you start emacs as root?  Did
you perform a system upgrade recently?  I cannot reproduce this
locally with GNU Emacs 25.3.1 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version
3.18.9) after removing the aforementioned lines from ~/.fluxbox/apps.
