I'm not familiar with how Debian snapshot packages work, but to be
completely sure that we are running the same version of Emacs, you
really ought to make a manual checkout and build it yourself. I have
now tried all of the suggestions and all possible combinations of
solutions, but none of them seem to work.

What *really* is bothering me though is that not even "emacs -Q" with
a clean .Xdefaults works properly. Even then the width/height are off!
>From this, I draw the conclusion that there is something fundamentally
wrong in either XMonad or Emacs, and I'm kind of leaning towards
believing it is the latter.
