Emacs window resizes to a very small size after startup

When I log into a remote system from a Mac (macOS 10.14.3, can be produced with older versions as well) using "ssh -Y" and run Emacs over this connection, Emacs will open a window of the requested size and immediately resize it to a very small size which only leaves about 3 lines of text visible.
This happens to multiple people using multiple operating systems on the remote machine:
In my case the target system runs OmniOS with Emacs 26.1 built from "pkgsrc".
The common factors seem to be:
- Emacs 25 or 26 using the GTK+ 3 toolkit
Version: 2.7.11 (xserver-1.18.4)
