The equal sizes are not guaranteed, but that doesn't mean they will
never happen. Especially when you put Emacs in an "impossible"
situation, where a simple split will not work.

<Shrug> It did work for me, so I'm unsure what's going on. Though I
couldn't have a window with 283 columns to begin with, so maybe it
depends on the actual sizes.

So did I.

I think you take the name of the variable too literally.
