Default Annoying emacs resizing bug in F7 and F8.

A few weeks ago I asked if anyone running 64bit F7 with KDE was having
resizing problems with Emacs and several here confirmed the bug.

Today I had a few minutes and so I built both the F7 and F8 src.rpm of
Emacs on a 32 bit FC6 laptop (which was all I have access to today) and
experienced the same problems. Evidently the move to Emacs-22.1 in F7
has introduced this bug and it has nothing to do with the machine
arch. That's my guess.

Would two or three of you confirm this for 32-bit F8? Just fire up
emacs and bink on the maximise button. Then bink it again and see if
Emacs returns to its original size.

I'd like to know the behaviour under both Gnome and KDE. I only have
KDE where it's broken for me. Thanks. I'll add your results to:

<https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=393441>

and see if I can get some action on this bug.

Thanks in advance!

Sorry to reply to my own message.

I just discovered that this is a "well-known" bug w/in the emacs
development crowd (including Richard Stallman)[1]. There is evidently
a nasty interaction between Emacs-22 and KDE which is causing this
annoying bug. (Explains why I am not seeing it with Gnome.) As of
Dec. 8th, they were working on it.

Please ignore the above request for tests. Fedora
probably won't touch this if it's being worked on upstream.

This is *not* an issue for emacs-22.1-8.fc8 and GNOME. (At least, I
couldn't reproduce it.)

Add this to the bugzilla you filled, so that others know too.

Good idea.

Done.
