Before upgrade to 23.2-1, Emacs (in X11) displayed 38 lines (corresponding to -geometry 80x40),
now it displays only 33 lines (-geometry 80x35) which is a bit small.
I tried with emacs -Q and didn't find anything related in view-emacs-news.

PS: It's not related but I saw in PKGBUILD:
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --libexecdir=/usr/lib \
--localstatedir=/var --mandir=${mandir} --without-sound -with-x-toolkit=gtk
It should be --with-x-toolkit=gtk (which is the defaut since 23.1)
This task depends upon

Still an issue with the lateste 23.3.1 release?
Comment by Benoit Izac (benizac) - Sunday, 20 March 2011, 18:17 GMT
Yes, no change. I didn't see it because I added `emacs.geometry: 80x40' in my ~/.Xdefaults.

I'm not sure if it's a bug or a feature...

It's an upstream change. They changed the defualt size to 80x35.

In emacs-23.3/src/frame.c :

#define DEFAULT_ROWS 35
#define DEFAULT_COLS 80

Just use Xdefaults to change it like you already did.
