A lot of people kept it unnecessarily large because the auto-resizing
sucked; removing manual resizing was the easiest way to fix it. I
think this would be actually less distracting than "dancing widgets,"
because where the "dancing widgets" could happen on their own with
zero intervention from you, this "re-arranging" happens only by user
input in a very predictable, understandable manner.

Would a smooth scroll better suit you? ;)

It took me a while to figure it out too, but I mean bringing back the
GtkPaned widget that allows you to manually resize.
