I'm confused now.  Does (2) really work in the sense that you can resize
the frame by dragging its internal border?

Ah! No, sorry.

I can drag it around no problem. As for resizing, it doesn't work. The cursor shows the appropriate shapes when near the window borders, but dragging it by the border can only move it (i.e. dragging the top or left border moves the child frame, but does not resize it).

Dragging it by the border is not as snappy as dragging it by the mode-line, BTW.
