Works for me, though I use .Xdefaults rather than .Xresources, and
(probably critically) I have "xrdb -merge ~/.Xdefaults" executed
during X session startup.

The problem I have is with emacs frames that turn on toolbar-mode.
Mostly I don't use it, but for one frame (the one I use for gnus) I
do.  When the toolbar appears, it is as though the frame sticks out
below the screen until I switch workspaces, then stuff seems to get
resized correctly.  (Probably it would be easiest just to turn off
toolbar-mode entirely, of course.)
