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

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

Load Emacs (either by clicking on a text file's icon or by starting
emacs.exe or gnuclientw.exe.)

Emacs' frame appears in the top left corner of the screen. On Windows OS
this is ok when the OS's symbol panel (Symbolleiste) is located at the
bottom of the screen. If the symbol panel is located at the top of the
screen part of Emacs' frame -- the title panel (Titelleiste) --  gets
hidden behind the symbol panel so that you can't grab and move the frame
on the desktop.

There are two workarounds.
1. After resizing the frame by dragging its bottom border Emacs seems to
realize that there is a panel above its frame and moves a little bit down.
2. After moving the symbol panel to the bottom of the screen and back to
the top again Emacs seems to realize that there is a panel above its
frame and moves a little bit down.

Expected behavior:
At startup Emacs should take into account symbol panels and the like.
That is, Emacs should not always be located at the top left corner in
physical screen coordinates but needs to check if there are other
desktop elements.

If emacs crashed, and you have the emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
If you would like to further debug the crash, please read the file
d:/Zweitsystem/Programme/Emacs/etc/DEBUG for instructions.
