redisplay_other_windows only tells Emacs that the next redisplay will
need to loop through all windows to see which ones need to be
redisplayed.  Without it, Emacs will only try to redisplay selected-window.

SET_FRAME_GARBAGED tells Emacs that this frame needs to be redrawn.
It calls redisplay_other_windows unconditionally.

Presumably, un-obscuring a frame shouldn't trigger any SIZE_RESTORED
thingy since the size is unaffected, right?

Can you try to do this?

Oh, that.  Yes, I'm not very happy with the use of frame-parameters to
affect "internal" frame properties.  It has never *really* bothered me,
but it seems like asking for trouble.
