Synopsis: Reporting of {EV_WINDOW}.width inconsistent across platforms

During execution of routines called as the result of extending maximize_actions,
the reported window width is inconsistent between the MS Win and GTK implementations. Under MS Win the new window dimension is reported, under GTK, the old dimension. This inconsistency messes up calculations required for example, to position a splitter.

Of the two behaviours, the GTK one is preferable as EV_SCREEN can always be used to find the maximized dimensions.

Presumably minimize_actions routines has the same problem.
