Ok, might need some further discussion then before taking action.

Removing 2.3.0 target.

OTOH if window size has been increased on purpose, people may think it annoying if it gets automatically shrunk when they visit main menu.

The main menu window should always have the same initial dimensions when you return to it - just enough to display the splash and buttons.

My testcase is:
1)Connect to a server with a longer intro message - I tested on one of Cazfi's 'Ancients' servers.
2)Note how the window is resized to include the intro message at the bottom
3)Disconnect and return to the main menu
4)Note the window dimensions

Expected behavior:
*As you return to the main menu, the initial dimensions of the window is restored

Actual behavior:
*The window dimensions from step 2 are retained at the main menu, making it too tall (and hard to resize on my MacBook ;) ).
