    Default Emacs in 11.2: window resizing problem

    Hello,

    I switched from 11.1 to 11.2 last month. I'm now having a smoother experience with openSUSE, with some exceptions.

    One is Emacs.

    A rather annoying "feature" that has appeared is the following: When editing a LaTeX file, compiling it (C-c C-c, using AucTeX macros) makes the Emacs window become shorter by one line. The same happens if I switch to some other buffer. It does not happen if I switch back to the LaTeX buffer.

    So, after just a few editing/compiling/checking errors sequences I find the original window half of its initial size...

    A similar problem occurs when editing IDLWAVE scripts (it's a proprietary scientific data analysis language widely used in my field, but still has its Emacs macros), but only if I open an interactive IDL-shell to run the script.

    So, I imagine it's not a problem related to AucTeX, although it might be related to the macros opening separate buffers/windows (e.g.: error messages) associated with the current buffer. Also, the problem does not go away if I remove my own .emacs customization files.

    Checking the Emacs bug lists, it seems that there are some bugs related to window resizing, although I have not been able to find exactly the same problem I am having. But, before reporting this one, I'd like to hear from fellow Emacs/openSUSE users. Just in case I'm messing things up somehow.


    Currently using: Emacs v 23.1.1


    Some more info: Dell Precision M65 portable workstation, NVIDIA Quadro FX1500 using the binary NVIDIA driver). Using OpenSuse 11.2 + KDE 4.3.1

    I have exactly the same annoying problem here, using emacs-23.1-10.9. Almost every time focus moves to the mini-buffer and exits it with auctex, window height becomes smaller by approximately one line. I'm considering filing a bug report, since I found nothing similar from a quick google search for other distributions.

    sure sound like one of you two should start one, and the other comment
    and adding hardware details, etc..

    well, maybe there is already one logged...be sure and look:

    Good idea. Please do it, and if you need any more information for your report from me, let me know.

    This this only occurs in KDE 4.4, neither Gnome nor TWM. Are you using KDE too?

    When I started this topic, I was using OpenSuse 11.2 + KDE 4.3.1. Through the online update I am now using KDE 4.3.5, release 0.1.1.

    The emacs version I am using is 23.1, release 3.7.1

    Just to add some more info from a simple test I have just made: I edited a simple LaTeX file, I maximized the Emacs window, and then ran LaTeX within Emacs. Now the window has "forgotten" it had been maximized, so I cannot restore it to its original size any more.

    Are you going to file a bug report? If so, let me know, so that I can comment with all the information I have.

    Thanks

    I can confirm exactly the same bug in Ubuntu lucid beta1, so it doesn't seem to be distro related.
    Also, it does not occur under gnome, only with kde4,
    and it also doesn't occur with emacs22.

    The hint concerning KDE saved my life... I am switching to gnome as a temporary workaround.
