That's exactly what I said, just in other words.

They are both called _after_ prepare_menu_bars.  So if
resize_mini_window, however it is called, sets the flag that windows
has been resized, only the next redisplay cycle will notice that and
call the window-size-change-functions.

I already did that, before writing my message.

Yes, and that is not what you want because?...

I was talking about the situation after you proposed changes, which
will cause the flag to be set (AFAIU).

But grow_mini_window only recomputes the start of the window, it does
not redisplay it.  The next cycle will.

The function update_frame only reflects on the glass what its
redisplay cycle computed to be the desired display.  If redisplay
didn't recompute the window contents, update_frame will change

Careful with drawing conclusions from the call order alone.  The fact
that redisplay_internal was called doesn't mean it actually decided to
redisplay a specific window, or any window.  The fact that
update_frame was called doesn't necessarily mean that anything at all
was written to the glass.  These functions have a lot of optimizations
in them, and try to avoid doing stuff if they think it isn't
necessary.  You need to trace into the functions' guts to see if they
actually update anything.  Especially update_frame, which tries very
hard to avoid writing to the glass, if it thinks the desired and the
current contents are the same.  That function is the last line of
defense against redisplaying the same stuff over and over again.
