Bug#370827: vim-full: window size gets reduced on every restore from (gnome-)session

Package: vim-full
Version: 1:7.0-017+5
Severity: minor

When I leave a gvim window open in a GNOME session so that it is saved
on logout, it will restore on the next login to a height two (I think)
lines smaller than it was left.  This requires manual resizing or you'll
get a very small window indeed after a few iterations.

Judging by the way the window looks to be drawn on startup, I suspect
that it's either the menu, toolbar or both playing into it.  It seems to
save the dimensions of the text window on shutdown and restores a pure
text window of the same size on login, enabling menu and toolbar only
afterwards which then take up some of the text space.

I think vim 6 had the same problem.
