      One probably doesn't change the font size very often, but I recently did and
      could not see the command line any more. Looking into the code I've seen
      that vim increases the window size instead of adapting the line number,
      but interestingly not so for windows. I happen to use Xmonad,
      where window size does not change, so I first regarded this as a bug.
      Still the behavior seems not sensible to me. When I change the font size
      I don't think of changing the window size.
      Or: The windows size seems more important to me than the line number.

      If you agree, please apply the following patch:

      I can't remember why it's different for MS-Windows.  Perhaps because it
      didn't work reliably on Unix?

      I could just include this patch and wait until someone complains...


      I just tried this on Windows 7.
      NOTE: My Taskbar is on the top of my screen not in the default bottom location.

      :ver
      VIM - Vi IMproved 7.3 (2010 Aug 15, compiled Nov 20 2012 14:29:01)
      MS-Windows 32-bit GUI version with OLE support
      Included patches: 1-725

      I started using:
      gvim -u NONE -U NONE --noplugins

      The moved the window down so that the bottom was near to the bottom of my screen.  Then using the menu Edit -> Select Font -> bumped it from 9 -> 14 -> 22 and so on.

      The bottom of Vim is off screen each time I increase it.
