Well I use a tiling WM (Xmonad), and to reproduce your issue, I started 12
instances of 'xterm' and then started an Emacs instance with '-q
-no-site-file' which caused Emacs to start with a smaller window where I got a
non-fancy splash screen.
Try starting your Emacs in full-screen mode .e.g. 'emacs -fs'.
