Great!  Seems that it is deadlock situation, when XEmacs's Xt part
issues X configure request to set up new geometry for frame and blocks
waiting for WM reply, but wm can't answer because XEmacs blocked.

I tried to play around with 'wait-for-wm Emacs frame property, but it
does not help much.  I dont know details how XEmacs or (Xt) configures
new geom, maybe ask about it XEmacs developers?

Also I heard that setting geometry is better to go with X resources
database, because changes can be applied before maping initial frame.
As i know when XEmacs evaluates ~/.emacs and see that there changes to
`initial-frame-plist' it deletes first frame, and creates new with
proper geometry.

Hehe, great, i have similar configuration :)
