The window manager can resize the window, for example when you drag on its 
corners, or when you maximize it.
Or it can intercept Emacs resize request and modify it, so it is consistent 
with size hints.
In both cases a ConfigureNotify is sent.  Gtk+ does receive it.  The problem is 
that Gtk+ then tries to apply size hints also.

Focus events does not contain any information about width/height and can't be 
taken as a resize request.  That would be kind of perverse, focus has nothing 
to do with resize.

The bug report that lead to the change mentioned no such problems.

The window manager is what does the fullscreen happen, so it is free to ignore 
any hints, i.e. hints should not matter, fullscreen takes precedence.  But in 
principle hints during fullscreen may not reflect the "true" state of affairs.
