Why doesn't it make sense?  The computed value of new_frame_total_cols
is used to enlarge only the frame's root window:

  if (new_frame_total_cols != FRAME_TOTAL_COLS (f))
    {
      set_window_width (FRAME_ROOT_WINDOW (f), new_frame_total_cols, 2);

And for the root window, FRAME_TOTAL_COLS is correct, I think.  The
window configuration, however complex, does not affect the root
window, does it?

I think it does, yes.  In any case, the code in change_frame_size_1
_is_ run on text-only terminals (or should I say for frames on
text-only terminals, since we have multi-tty now).
