Conceptually we don't change its height when the window is "horizontally
combined" because that would also change the height of its left or right
sibling.  However, when the window is "vertically combined" I see no
reason not to change its height.  Could you submit a patch (ideally,
replacing the two forms below

         (window-full-width-p window)
         ;; If window is alone in its frame, aside from a minibuffer,
         ;; don't change its height.
         (not (eq window (frame-root-window (window-frame window))))

with one)?

Thanks, martin
