Older window systems would often just discard all window contents on
resize. Adding well-defined bit and window gravity to X11 made it able
to preserve window contents across resize in a predictable manner, and
the whole adventure in SlideAndSizeWindow was designed to 'fix' what was
once a fairly broken implementation of that. The recomputation of
exposures is a fairly blunt instrument to apply in this case, but it was
the easiest mechanism I could come up with at the time.
