and the precise symptoms of the bug:

Problem Description:

    Under X, resizing an upper window by pulling a mode-line down near a
    lower mode-line correctly causes the lower window to be _also_ moved
    down when the lower window's size gets too small.  But resizing a
    lower window by pulling the mode-line above it upwards does *not*
    bump the higher mode-line up, *nor* does the lower window get
    resized when the window above it hits its size limit.

Steps To Repeat:

    1) Start emacs under X.

    2) C-x 2 C-x 2 to get 3 windows in the frame.

    3) Grab the mode-line for the upper window and pull it down until it
       gets near the mode-line right below it.  Note that the lower
       window gets resized until it gets too small and then the lower
       mode-line gets moved down in step with the upper mode line.

    4) Now grab the middle mode line and pull it up, note that the
       mode-line above it does *not* get moved up when the lower
       mode-line gets near it.  In this case the lower window can only
       be increased in size by first pulling the upper mode-line UP and
       THEN also pulling the lower (i.e. the middle) mode-line up.

My Expectation:

    I expected that the up & down resizing behaviors would be similar.
