Yes you are. Emacs calculates dimensions and coordinates based on the
frame font because you're setting the "frame size". You can change
the fit-frame function to be smarter - it should be pretty easy.
Convert to pixels based on the default face, then convert back to
But even so: the "width" of the default face is just an approximation,
because the default face may well be a variable-width font.
If you do improve fit-frame, please post the new code. (You can check
if Drew Adams has an updated version.)
