- why is it better to use it? I have all my emacs config stuff in my
one .emacs file, and having two places to configure stuff would IMHO
not make anything better.

If you do it in »~/.emacs«, Emacs starts *with* a tool bar (which
obviously doesn't make much sense) and removes it later.  Compare the
two calls below.  You'll see that they lead to different sizes of the
Emacs frame.

emacs -q -no-site-file -xrm 'Emacs.toolBar: 0' -geometry 80x20

emacs -q -no-site-file -xrm 'Emacs.toolBar: 1' -geometry 80x20 \
  -eval '(tool-bar-mode -1)

I have now got an .Xresources file and have neatly got rid of my menu, tool and scrollbars. However in KDE, my emacs icon is set to launch emacs with this:

kstart --maximize emacs %f

and somehow it is not maximizing it properly. There is a 1 cm gap between the bottom of emacs and my KDE menu.

I just checked over my .emacs file and unless I've gone blind, there's nothing in there affecting it.
