Yes.

Allocate the glyph matrices, at the very least, I guess.

Maybe it shouldn't, when called from init_display.  But we should at
least leave an eassert there, in case we overlook something.

In any case, this begs the question: why do you at all call
adjust_frame_size in this case, if the frame already has the required
size?  I think the answer is that adjust_frame_size does something
else: it calls adjust_frame_glyphs.  That call is required at
init_display time for obvious reasons, but it is inside
adjust_frame_size which is only called when the frame size changes,
which sounds like a contradiction in the design.

Any calls that actually change the frame size.

You already do, if I understand your description.  You already avoid
calling adjust_frame_size unless the size really changes.
