Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

ediff provides a function that allows toggling of a frame to a wide frame.
Now every time I execute this function my frame moves up a bit.
modify-frame-parameters seems to be the culprit.
When I call e.g.
(modify-frame-parameters nil '((left . 250)))
emacs not only modifies the x-coordinate, but also moves
the frame upwards a bit. Such a call works fine in 21.3.

I've checked in a fix. But beware, in 21.3 left and top referred to the outer coordinates without window manager decorations. In CVS current, left and top is the coordinate with the window manager decorations included.

So don't expect 21.3 and CVS current to end up at exactly the same position, there will be a difference that is the height/width of your window manager decorations.
