Not sure if I understand correctly. I have only one monitor. So I
unplugged it in the startup. Launch my PC, wait enough and replug it.
Still same behavior.

I also done a test with a new fresh user and a fresh vim configuration.
Same issue.

Additional note, it need some space between the terminal and the bottom
of the screen. 

I do not know if it could help. When I open a thunar window,
it is in the good place (aka not off-screen). If I maximize the vim
window, then it is go back to the screen. Screen size seems to be fine.

Well I have found something strange. It is possible to configure menu
bar/tools bar etc... in gvim.

When I disable everything. My window is good. In this situation gvim
windows is smaller than the terminal one.
When I enable some bars. My windows is bad. The size of the part
offscreen seems equal of the bars. And gvim window is bigger than the
terminal one.

IMHO it is probably worth it to investigate the inheritance size of
