Resizing smaller isn't available anyhow - when the size of a GTK
window is fixed, the size is equal to the minimum size; so even if the
window were resizable, you could never resize smaller than that size.

Going smaller than the minimum size "breaks" widgets and starts to
clip text, etc.

If you have a won't-fit-on-screen window you want to move the window
such that the part you're looking at is onscreen, rather than resizing
it smaller. Resizing it smaller just makes the widgets unusable.

So the only issue here is whether the window can be _expanded_,
_shrinking_ windows below their normal size is not available even for
resizable windows.
