I must admit, neither do I. The report results from an issue reported
for a package of mine:


I took the calls to `custom-push-theme' and `face-spec-recalc' from the
code of the `default-text-scale' package.

Well, the fact is that after the font size change, the number of
characters that fit in the window changes as well. AFAIU the return
value of `window-total-width' depends on that, at least in part. Unless
I'm wrong in that assumption...

I'll try with the latest Emacs and provide the output of
window--dump-frame ASAP.
