I can confirm this.

I see this when I log in as an administrator, but not when I'm an 
ordinary user.  We've discussed this before, and I think it's harmless.

I don't see this...

Do you have an emacs.geometry setting in your ~/.Xresources?  Or any 
kind of size setting in your emacs initialization files?  If not, I 
guess emacs or X11 has a default.

I'll look into the 3-line window and see if I can figure out what's 
going on.
