That will not work well (you can try and see yourself).  But the
opposite, i.e. having a 80-line frame on a 100-line terminal, is quite
usable.  In fact, some people seem to use that to have minibuffer-only
frames on a TTY.

It knows about it, yes:

  /* Add in menu bar lines, if any.  */
  matrix_dim.height += top_window_y;

If all the rest is a no-op, yes, why not?

Sorry, you lost me here.  First, you use "window" in several
overloaded meanings, or so it seems.  And second, why are we suddenly
talking about SIGWINCH and its handling?  This is not the scenario in
which this bug happens.

How else will FrameCols/FrameRows be updated if the user calls
set-frame-size and its ilk?

> And setting FrameCols when called from init_display is certainly not

If you are sure they are already set by then, OK.  Evidently, in this
case, the call to change_frame_size tried to decrease the frame size
by one line, so something is still out of sync somewhere.

Is that supposed to be the answer to my question, or just say what I
said in other words?

I can reproduce it with the current trunk on GNU/Linux where I invoke
"emacs -Q -nw" via PuTTY.  The resize is _after_ I invoke frame-height
the second time, which is already the sign of a problem.

You can't.  get_tty_size reports the _physical_ dimensions of the
terminal screen, so it cannot support set-frame-size and its ilk,
which leave the physical dimensions unaltered.
