[arch-general] Emacs 23 window resize on startup

Hi Christian!

Thank you for this tip but I’m afraid it does not work for me. I executed the commands you suggested and they worked without printing any error (at first they did because of a typo of mine). The result is that my Emacs window now starts up quite small in the middle of the screen and the is almost (before the actual content is drawn) resized to a bigger size. But this also makes it appear not centered but rather asymmetrical somewhat left of the center of the screen.

Perhaps I’ll try my luck on the Emacs help mailing list in a few days or so.
