Is it not that old lil' bug where you had to directly set Widget_draw
dimensions to those obtained from the window's Resize event, and nothing
else seemed to help? I think *that* worked. Try something like

if tag_names(event, /STRUCTURE_NAME) EQ 'WIDGET_BASE' then begin
	; Here, Widget_draw is the first Child of Top base...
	widget_control, widget_info(event.id, /child), $
	draw_xsize=event.x, draw_ysize=event.y
	Object -> setProperty, /draw ; Redraw

This was fixed in 5.4 I think.
