*hehehe*, there is a misunderstanding here, for which different
terminology is to blame. I was talking Emacs-lingo. The geometry
option/X-ressource does affect only whole frames (that what is called
"windows" everywhere else in the computing world). Windows in
Emacs-lingo are the areas of the frame that are created by
"splitting" the frame horizontally or vertically.

Now the tool-bar is actually such a window but with some special
properties. I'd like to know if it is possible to create such special
windows from Lisp. (Though I doubt it.)
