The resize problem has been encountered before.  However, I do not recall who 
reported it or if they were running MacOS or Linux (pretty sure it wasn't 
Windows). Also, I don't think it occurred for everyone.

My faint recollection is that the resize problem is fixed in the developer's 
sources. There is a discussion on the maintainers list where it has been 
suggested 3.4.1 incorporate all changes since 3.4.0. Are you up to trying to 
create a dmg for the developers sources?
