It does effectively work better in Mixbus32C 5.0.182.  Sometimes it
will not resize up but then, resizing once step more to a higher size by
10% and resizing back will work.  So basically it now works, perhaps
not as smoothly, but it works.  I would presume that this will
work with all u-he linux plugins.

But then I use Mixbus for mixing not fore creating music.  So although
this example was about a synth, I very rarely use synths in Mixbus but
rather audio processing.  And one important audio processing tools are
the Melda plugins, run through linvst.  And these can change their size
depending on options chosen at run-time.  Their resizing doe snot go
well in Mixbus.  It's the same in Bitwig but with the crucial
difference that in Bitwig, minimizing the plugin and bringing it back
will make it appear correctly to the new size.  Eg. when the plugin is
brought back the new window size is transmitted correctly to Bitwig who
then adapt to it.  In mixbus there's no such thing.  Minimizing the
plugin and bringing it back will not make it appear fully to the new
size.  If only Mixbus could do that, it would be great.

I was told by Bitwig support that Mixbus/Ardour does not 'close' the UI
when minimizing.  Hence no new size is taken into account when bringing
it back.
