Unfortunately, I still run into this bug from time to time. I do not
know what the circumstances are, but occasionally emacs will save the
non-pixel width. I wonder if this has to do with the fact that I use
different fonts in different buffers (with variable-pitch-mode).

I cannot find a consistent way to reproduce it, but I see it often.

If it's ok, I'd like to always save as pixels when
`frame-resize-pixelwise' is non-nil rather than skipping the save if
the pixel size happens to fall on a multiple of text pixel width. It
would theoretically be a breaking change, but I can't imagine it being
one that people would be upset about.
