I tried to understand this change, but failed to. I most cases I would
expect the current GNUstep code to be more or less equivalent to your
code. Where would there be any difference?
The safety check is only about resetting the resize attributes of the
content view, which should not be needed and doesn't make any
difference. And for normal views the resizeWithOldSuperviewSize: method
call should be equivalent to the setFrame: call. What I need to
understand is, why this makes a difference in your case, so what is the
resize behaviour of your content view? And what is the problem you
