I agree it would be better if these checks are removed, they will always be
subject to races such as this. However there are a bunch of these checks,
 I don't really get the motivation for doing them. Mostly it seems they
want to avoid changing the size of the video viewport when a toolbar or
other UI element is hidden (by resizing the parent window), but I don't see
what the big deal is with letting it grow or shrink.
