I already tried this before reporting the bug.  It doesn't work,
because we then hit these assertions in fake_current_matrices:

          eassert (m->matrix_h == WINDOW_TOTAL_LINES (w));
          eassert (m->matrix_w == WINDOW_TOTAL_COLS (w));

In general, I think it's a bad idea to have bogus values in
WINDOW_TOTAL_LINES and WINDOW_TOTAL_COLS, they are not documented to
be invalid under any circumstances, so the code relies on them.

What exactly frightens you in your first proposal?  Perhaps we should
install my patch on the emacs-24 branch and your window.el patch on
the trunk?
