I don't think we did. But frame size can't in general stay constant as we
have wm hints. For example, I have 13 pixels of text height. That gives min
resize 13. The tool bar is 36 pixels. So when the tool bar goes, either we
increase text size by 3 (== 39, 3 additional pixels) or by 2 (26, decrease by
I'll implement whatever seems easiest, and then people can suggest
alternatives after that.
