For compatibility with previous versions of Emacs, I think it
shouldn't, at least not on the emacs-24 branch.

resize-mini-windows is a misnomer: it actually means "mini-window size
is controlled by display engine".  That's why window-sizing commands
in previous versions never paid heed to it, only redisplay did.  And
that's why, quite counter-intuitively, setting it to _nil_ allows the
user to resize the mini-window.

We could make the implementation more in line with the name in future
versions, if we want, of course.
