But then what would that fix solve?  The above test in expose_frame is
not a bug: if the frame is marked as garbaged (and it must be after
resizing it), then the call to expose_frame cannot possibly DTRT, so
it exits right away without doing anything.  We should enter redisplay
soon enough, which will redraw the entire frame.  If anything, then
the call to expose_frame in the control flow that reacts to frame
resizing is the one that should be removed, because it's bound to do
nothing useful.

If removing SET_FRAME_GARBAGED when the frame is resized seems to
solve some problem, then you are likely not really resizing the frame,
or not resizing it significantly enough to show why SET_FRAME_GARBAGED
is really needed.

Or maybe I'm just missing something.
