for me, with out-of-the-box default settings gnome, that's how that dialog always worked when resized back in 6-2 and 6-1 too. With the attach modal dialog setting on (the default) both 6.2 and 6.3 grow equally on all sizes. With the attach modal dialog setting off, both 6.2 and 6.3 for me only grow on the stretched size.

I can well imagine that the patch changed the behaviour for some configuration, maybe an idle timer to unset the force-centering when the underlying window has probably eventually come to its final setting would help. I'll try a blind attempt at that
