    I don't see an easy way to implement the "wait for C-l" -- and for the
    case at hand, it doesn't even solve the problem, as the abnormal
    behaviour happens when the toolbar size is increased.

You are right; this bug would still have to be fixed at the low level.

Nonetheless, the change I suggest in the auto-resize behavior would
avoid a behavior that might be quite annoying.  It only takes two
characters to switch windows, and I often do that a few times in a
row.  If the toolbar were to change size each time, it would be
very distracting.  If it were to remain enlarged until I type C-l
to let it shrink back down, that distraction would be gone.
