So it's probably some detail of how the windows are redisplayed that
leaves the mini-window with the extra space, instead of giving it to
the previous window.

Doesn't the fullscreen option on X resize _the_frame_ instead of
windows?

On Windows, the fullscreen I tried was by sending a special command to
the window manager.  I'm guessing that this resizes the frame, and
then Emacs's redisplay simply uses what it's got.  I will have to look
at the sources to see if my guess is correct.
