More:   When it does that resize, it does NOT make them all
        the same size.  It makes all EXCEPT the top window
        be the same size.  AND it appears that the distance
        my mouse pointer strays below the modebar before the
        resize happens affects the new sizes of those windows.

        I did the dragging and went WELL below the stopped
        modebar and the windows resized to 8-10 lines each.

        I re-did the dragging and went just a TINY bit below
        the mode bar and the windows resized to 1 line each!
        And that "1 line" is, I believe, less than the minimum
        size (that I haven't changed from default).

        Well, I'm hoping these data points might help you.
