Well, it seems that nobody on your side remembers the reason for why
that particular xg_frame_resized call was added :-(

It is not that xg_frame_resized doesn't work anymore with GTK 3.22. It
just gets called at a time when the GdkWindow is not fully set up yet.
The reason that that happens now is due to a)  to some subtle changes
in the way GTK+ sets up windows initially and b) emacs poking directly
at X events like MapNotify.
