[arch-general] Emacs 23 window resize on startup

Thanks all for your help! I finally got things quite working by specifying window geometry and font on the command line via --font and --geometry switches. This works as expected and it seems that Emacs only reads the ~/.emacs file after the window has already been displayed.

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.
