Bug report #17233

QGIS Main Window resizes itself upon saving the project to show the 'successfull save' message

In my current master, when I make the QGIS window rather small, if you load some data, and save the project, after the saving there is feedback in the bottom of the window (between the Locator-input and the Coordinate-txt) telling you the project was saved to eg /home/richard/bla/foo/work/longggname.... etc

BUT it also resizes the window, forcing a repaint

Anybody else seeing

I have a dual display system and the main windows is maximised on the first screen. Whenever I save the project it pushes the main window out onto the second display. This is happening on master 60fd763, But I also have many VMs running older masters, and they don't do it.

I believe I'm experiencing the same issue. Upon saving a project, via either save command via menu or key-command (⌘S), the screen resizes.

The latest master still pushes the window wider, but doesn't push the title bar down as well like earlier ones did.

Just to add WHY this is sometimes painfull: some providers (in my case WFS provider) try to query the full dataset again. Which in case of a rather hefty wfs query can be very time consuming.
