As I described in https://bugzilla.altlinux.org/show_bug.cgi?id=26009 , when started, the Emacs window is larger than the height of the screen in xfce in Simply Linux beta 2011-06-20.
It would be nice if the Emacs window would respect the height of the screen.
Of course, a workaround is to maximize the window in order for it to fit to the screen.
The screen dimensions reported by xdpyinfo:
dimensions: 1024x600 pixels (270x158 millimeters)
