How about the following course:

 . On master, accept what Matthias suggests and deal with bug reports
   if and when they come.

 . On the release branch, provide some safe workaround, triggered by
   an option users could set if they encounter this problem with a
   future GTK version.  This assumes such a safe workaround is
   possible, of course; I thought along the lines of the user
   specifying the initial size explicitly in some way.

Would that work?
