How about the following course:

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

Sounds good, and I did that.

  . 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.

Another possibility is to ask builders not to combine GTK+4 (or will this be GTK+ 3.22? it's not clear), whenever it comes out, with Emacs 25 whenever it comes out; and to instead stick with GTK+ 3.20 or earlier when building Emacs 25. If that's a reasonable request then the problem goes away.
