Yes, that is UNACCEPTABLE! Get it through your head that the intention 
of Wayland is so that Linux stops looking like crap compared to other 
systems. NEVER NEVER NEVER should a "partially updated window" appear. 
If it does, Wayland is junk. This means your idea violates one of the 
basic design principles of Wayland and cannot be done.

You also have to face it that programs lock up and don't respond to all 
kinds of actions and it is silly to try to address just resize. If the 
window is not going to draw I would prefer it not to resize so I don't 
lose the old contents.
