The patch below seems to fix some of the problem, but not all of it:
the position of the status line (the one that shows the process
information) is not updated correctly.

Tom, where's the position update of the status line supposed to be
handled?

And btw, the meaning of the 'locator' object in tui_adjust_win_heights
is unclear: to which window does it pertain, and what is the
significance of this line:

	      TUI_CMD_WIN->origin.y = locator->origin.y + 1;

I think we could use some additional comments in tui-stack.c or
tui-stack.h, to explain what is the meaning and expected use of
tui_locator_window.

The locator window is the line that sits between the source windows and the command
line's window (in the TUI's source layout).  It displays information such as current
thread id, current line and current PC.

I learned this watching Tom's excellent FOSDEM presentation, here :)

Thanks; I wish this was spelled out in our comments.

The next question is: what code readjusts the location of the locator
window when the source or the command window is resized, and where is
that code called?  because the preceding code in
tui_adjust_win_heights modifies only 2 windows: the one whose height
was directly changed by the winheight command, and the other one,
which is displayed above or below it.

Btw, this window is called "status line" in the manual, and the
different name doesn't help in code reading.

I looked at the gdb-9 branch.  In tui_adjust_win_heights, it is code
like this:

		  locator->resize (1, width,
				   0, (second_win->origin.y
				       + second_win->height + 1));

You and Simon discussed this down-thread.  FWIW the name "locator" has
been used in the source since the beginning; but I also don't
particularly care for it (for a long time I could never remember the
name and had to search to find it whenever I needed it).  So, I would
appreciate a rename in the code here as well.

Also, thanks for pointing out that this is called "status" in the docs.
That affects my other series to make user-specified layouts.  In that
series I called the window "locator" -- but I'm going to go rename it.

Eli> TUI_CMD_WIN-> origin.y = locator->origin.y + 1;

This is a leftover and should be removed.  The resize method is the way
to modify a window's size and position.

This code is all different on git master.

Your patch looks reasonable to me.

Other cases in tui_adjust_win_heights move the locator explicitly:

		  locator->resize (1, width,
				   0, (second_win->origin.y
				       + second_win->height + 1));

This just needs to be added to the first case, that you already
modified:

	  if (cur_layout == SRC_COMMAND 
	      || cur_layout == DISASSEM_COMMAND)
...

I don't have the master built here: can you seed if the original
recipe, i.e. "winheight src +8", works on master as expected?  If so,
only the GDB 9 branch needs fixing.

Thanks, I will finish it off as suggested, and submit a full patch for
review.

I tried it and it seems fine to me.
