I am running Linux Mint 17.1 with Cinnamon. Every time I launch emacs24, either from a command line or from a launcher, it sizes itself to just less than the full size of the screen. --geometry has no effect; a setting in .Xresources has no effect. Shortly after starting, it generally hiccups and fiddles with the size again.

emacs -q --no-site-file

/usr/bin/emacs24 -q --no-site-file --geometry 80x24
and I still got an expanded Window. I suspect some sort of cinnamon auto-expansion, but I can't find any relevant setting.
The current version of cinnamon on Mint 17.1 is:
