If you run emacs like this and then grab the title bar as soon as it
appears and hold down the mouse button, the window won't resize.

emacs -Q --eval="(progn (sleep-for 5) (setq initial-frame-alist '((top
. 0) (left . 20) (width . 100)(height . 30))))"

I'm guessing the window manager is waiting for me to complete the drag
and drop it somewhere, but if I wait until emacs has finished the eval
the window is never resized. I noticed this because I have a not
insubstantial .emacs and happened to try to move the window right
after it appeared and it never resized.

Not really a major bug, just odd.

This is possibly a bug in your window manager. Some window managers (mwm, twm) behaves as you describe, some resize the Emacs window when you release the title bar (blackbox, fluxbox, wmaker) and some resize at once (icewm). It is really a quality of implementation issue in the window manager, Emacs can do nothing about it.
