out that settings in .Xdefaults have no effect.
Actually on my system the file .Xdefaults isn't even touched by ME (as
strace tells me), only a file .Xdefaults-thinkpad (thinkpad is my
hostname) is tried to be read (in accordance with X(7)). Setting up a
symlink .Xdefaults-thinkpad -> .Xdefaults doesn't change the behaviour,
although the file is read. (Your settings give me a 73x14+287+210 window.)
I wonder what the interface for setting windows sizes is (in regard to
the X server and/or window manager). With other applications (e.g.
Mozilla Thunderbird) I can perfectly set up geometry properties through
my window manager's configuration (similar to .Xdefaults). With ME it
does not work.
Is ME making any attempts to set its "window size" or is this totally up
to the window manager? Who is responsible for placing and sizing the ME
window? I really want this to be fixed.
