In the sense that the frame can get larger or smaller than the terminal
window?  So we internally work with say 100 frame lines although the
terminal can display only 80?  Or am I missing something?

OK.  BTW doesn't adjust_frame_glyphs_for_frame_redisplay count the
menubar specially?  What is

  top_window_y = FRAME_TOP_MARGIN (f);

Can I call adjust_frame_size directly from init_display?

IIUC FrameRows is the height of the terminal window and when I change
the height of that window I want to change the height of the Emacs frame
as well via handle_window_change_signal/change_frame_size.  This means I
can set FrameCols where I do it now because whenever I change the size
of the outer frame that of the frame's windows changes too.

Still it seems to me contrived to set FrameCols/FrameRows when adjusting
the sizes of a frame's windows.  And setting FrameCols when called from
init_display is certainly not TRT IMHO.

Think of turning off/on the menubar of a maximized frame.  In this case
I do not change the size of the frame either.  Yet I have to call
adjust_frame_glyphs.  BTW in an earlier mail you said that

Where and how did you get that?  I can't reproduce it here.

Is turning off/on the TTY menubar one of them?  I think not.  Yet we set
FrameCols.  Wouldn't it be principally cleaner if we set FrameCols and
FrameRows after calling get_tty_size only?
