It's not really a bug. The way GTK+ works, a widget is only ever
guaranteed to be resized if the space it currently has is too
small for it's requisition. The requisition is a "minimum" size.

It might be a good idea to modify this to avoid the current
hysteresis effects. I have not gone through the consequences
of that for the implementation in detail.
