Both, 'display-buffer-in-child-frame' and 'set-frame-height', should
be written in a way that the child frame surely fits into its parent.
If you don't, the window manager might do strange things.

Sorry, i do not understand this, more detail or an example?

Also, I would disable all decorations that are not strictly needed.
For example, with a GTK build using your parameters I get a tool bar
on the child frame as soon as I type some character into it (which
might be an Emacs bug in one or the other way).  That tool bar is
truncated and GTK may not behave well with truncated tool bars.  See
section 29.14 of the Elisp manual for what better not to do on child

i think it is not toolbar's problem,posframe use childframe without toolbar, has resize problem too,

If neither of these helps, we would have to look into how Gnome-shell
treats child windows.  Gnome-shell seems particular (see Bug#38452). 

i think it may be gnome-shell problem, for other wm has no this problem
