Once more:

(1) The mode line disappears only when the frame size remains the same.
    Check this please via the arguments you pass (to `set-frame-size' or
    whatever you use).

(2) Everything else is drawn correctly, there's no area with background
    space only, as you claimed earlier.

Is that correct (from your experience, so far)?  You might want to
attach a screenshot.

Add the following function to your .emacs ...

(defun window--resize-root-window (window delta horizontal ignore pixelwise)
  "Resize root window WINDOW vertically by DELTA lines.
HORIZONTAL non-nil means resize root window WINDOW horizontally
by DELTA columns.

IGNORE non-nil means ignore any restrictions imposed by fixed
size windows, `window-min-height' or `window-min-width' settings.

This function is only called by the frame resizing routines.  It
resizes windows proportionally and never deletes any windows."
  (when (and (windowp window) (numberp delta))
    (let ((pixel-delta
           (if pixelwise
             (window--size-to-pixel window delta horizontal))))
      (when (window-sizable-p window pixel-delta horizontal ignore t)
        (window--resize-reset (window-frame window) horizontal)
         window pixel-delta horizontal ignore t)
        (window--dump-frame (window-frame window))))))

... and post the contents of the buffer *window-frame-dump* after a
fatal resize operation here (but make sure to not resize any frame again
_before_ getting hold of that buffer's contents!!!).
