I had given it some limited testing and I've done a few further tests
now.  Inherently, the old behavior was incorrect in a number of ways.
For example, it was impossible to reduce a minibuffer-only frame to
one text line unless horizontal scroll bars were explicitly disabled
for that frame.  It's now possible to enable horizontal scroll bars on
minibuffer windows although it does not make much sense.

In either case, thanks for the reminder.  Unfortunately, as we know,
frame/window resizing routines depend on too many external factors so
any related changes will always tend to be fragile.

martin, trying to close this bug now
