This concern is really tangential to the issue at hand: we would presumably all 
like window-total-width to reliably return an up-to-date value, and I doubt 
that any fix for that specific failure would affect anyone's existing code.

In any case, it’s already possible for the frame’s pixel size to remain 
unchanged even when the font changes: that’s what inevitably happens in the 
OS-managed fullscreen case described here.
