I *finally* worked out what’s going on here.

After updateFrameSize is called we end up in x_set_window_size:

    [window setFrame: wr display: YES];

That resizes and blanks the frame, then asks it to redraw, which takes
us, eventually, to drawRect, which does:

    ns_clear_frame_area (emacsframe, x, y, width, height);
    block_input ();
    expose_frame (emacsframe, x, y, width, height);
    unblock_input ();

ns_clear_frame_area does nothing here because the frame is already
blank, and expose_frame doesn’t redraw anything because the first
thing it does is:

    /* No need to redraw if frame will be redrawn soon.  */
    if (FRAME_GARBAGED_P (f))
        TRACE ((stderr, " garbaged\n"));

SO, I think that the SET_GARBAGED_FRAME call in updateFrameSize is
premature, which probably means my original patch is (surprisingly)
the correct fix. Possibly with the addition of SET_GARBAGED_FRAME
after the call to setFrame in x_set_window_size, although it makes no
obvious difference here.
