I’m not aware of any problems with global static variables, but I’m
certainly no expert. What is the risk?

No, I believe it’s never called from redisplay_internal. 

But x_set_window_size always leaves the frame blank (and there’s no
way round that as far as I can see), so there’s not much risk in
disabling screen updates until redisplay completes. All we’re doing is
preventing the user from seeing a blank frame.

Or is there some way for the frame to be redrawn other than redisplay
or expose_frame?

Nope. Is there a better place to put it? For example is there a hook
that runs when redisplay exits?
